    2016/2017

    DECEPTION

    Deception is an installation of a filmed physical theatre performance based on Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, but with a gender reversal. The performance takes place in a large white box where the movement and journey of the performers is traced by paint. The room then forms the screens on which the film of the
    performance is projected. Viewing of the film inside this box, along with the presence of props and costume, gives the audience a visually exciting, immersive, performance experience.

  • PAST PROJECTS

    2015
    Looking Good - Feeling Better

     
    Inspired by the real-life experiences of a breast cancer sufferer, Looking Good: Feeling Better is a passionate story of the social and personal traumas of the condition and the overt sexualisation of the body in campaigns used by fund-raising organisations. This physical theatre piece examines the complexity of the pressure to conform and the lack of consideration sufferers endure through overtly, aggressively sexual campaigning engaged in by multi-million pound earning breast cancer charities.
     
    Looking Good- Feeling Better : 13th February 2015 - Arena Theatre Wolverhampton.

    2016
    LACK

    LACK is a Physical Theatre performance that explores the traumas and emotions experienced in everyday entrapment.

     

    It challenges the audience to confront their own notions of being trapped, and being party to, the act of entrapment.

     

    How are we able to escape?

    Is there any way to escape?

    Do we set traps without knowing?

     

    Whether we feel trapped, or trap others there's always something we LACK.

     

    Thursday 25th February 2016 - Arena Theatre Wolverhampton.
