Review Quote


“...it's more than clever charades, it's an entertaining exposition on the gaping chasm between words and actions.” 

Lynsey Winship, Resolution Review

Consequences

A playful, uncanny, troubling piece exploring power relationships, interdependence and the idea of authorship and dance. 


Consequences is played at an interstice between dance and theatre, exploring the limits of each.  In a world of fatigue and tenderness, where the force of gravity is almost overwhelming and the obligation to continue struggles against a powerful temptation just to stop, two sets of performers encounter one another, in a negotiation to share space and a wrestle to control meaning.  Two actors speak a dance they can’t perform: three dancers respond, resist and transform their imaginings.


An extraordinary score of original sound and music by Sound Artist Lewis Gibson underscores the performance as it builds from a rubble of miscommunication and isolation to a brief glimpse of triumphand unison.
