In the course of a pitiless act of revenge, a young man and a girl exchange a single glance. Unwittingly, and without a word being spoken, they are forever bound to each other. 52 years later, in a twist of fate, they meet again.
Inne Goris, one of Europe’s most inventive theatre artists, has adapted Alessandro Baricco’s powerful, poetic novella Without Blood for the stage in an evocative and exquisite exploration of human relationships that uses sound, music and an eloquent movement vocabulary to create a theatrical alchemy of extraordinary experiences.
Without Blood is part of LIFT 2016, a London-wide festival of international performance.
Mark Ball, LIFT Artistic Director on the artists
“In a month long festival packed with new international work LIFT is thrilled to be commissioning Without Blood, an evocative and exquisite exploration of human relationships.
Inne Goris and Dominique Pauwels consistently push the boundaries of performance, telling powerful and moving stories by rigorously crafting together theatre with an ingenious use of sound and music and an eloquent movement vocabulary. The results are a theatrical alchemy that offer up extraordinary experiences for audiences.”
