The Performances

 

LIVE IN THE WAKE

Memory is at once elusive and tangible, slippery and unreliable, potent and powerful. Evocative and visceral dance theatre, Live In The Wake delves into the past and questions the future through the memories stored, suppressed, and imagined within and through the body.

THE REST IS SILENCE

Cries. Confessions. Longings. In this installation performance event, spectators experience the tragedy of Shakespeare's heroines. Through a blend of classic text and contemporary physical narrative, this site-specific piece actively engages viewers in the events and invites them to explore the unknown through their individual imaginative journey.
