Disappearing Acts

Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

“Israeli choreographer Yael Flexer has made a sense both of informality and of intimacy a trademark of her work. Less interested in showcasing the physical prowess of her dancers than in their ability to communicate in subtle, emotional ways, she sets her productions amid scenarios that tread a borderline between performance and the reality of the everyday.”
Judith Mackrell, The Guardian, London

Operating on the threshold of visibility, Disappearing Acts is a subtle reading of the body. Movements that disappear into the shadows or slip through unseen gaps in the curtains leave lingering traces on the retina.

Evocative images, stories and wry humour give voice to our experiences of disappearance, night-time and politically ‘dark times’.

Bringing together an international team of collaborators, choreography is by Yael Flexer and the company, text by Wendy Houston, direction by Pete Phillips, sound-score by Karni Postel James Keane, and Nic Sandiland, bespoke digital lighting by Nic Sandiland and Natalie Rowland and costume design by Holly Murray.

Suitable for 14+
