The last two people left on Earth. Maybe because the world has come to an end, maybe because civilisation as we know it has ceased to exist.
What would it be like removing all life demands and established expectations? How would identity be affected without the presence of the group?
In the absence of an all-encompassing society, two circus performers turn to imagination and resilience to start from scratch. With only themselves as an audience, their new reality takes on unexpected guises. Humorous situations, desperate isolation, and inventive past-times, are all to share the (non-) stage.
'An example of just how mesmerising dance can be'

Inspired by Wim Wenders’s cinematographic work, Sara interprets Jane the long missing female character in Paris Texas. Locked into those rooms created to charm, we discover her as she obeys behind an one-way glass mirror to her customers’ desires. She plays amused and insouciante, until thrown back to the real world, she becomes aware again of the child she has abandoned some years ago.
Under the lights, fully exposed to an audience she does not see, she pretends to own it, the game she has set up between you and herself. But reality as performers is never too far to unveil the masks we wear on stage.

Have you ever felt physically love sick, or just mentally sick of love? This cruel solo pursuit dissects the grotesque self conscious, displaying anxious confessions of a romantically melancholic soul. Joss Carter confronts the barriers between dance theatre and live performance art, stripping the ego to its core to evoke depressive methods of madness within his own personal experiences with love and mental health. With a stage drenched in sadness, Joss hangs in a world of shame and denial with the hope of unearthing once again, the empathetic archeology of human existence and suffering, aiming to bring further awareness of its conceptual issues into real life.
This piece contains nudity and graphic imagery which some viewers may find offensive and traumatic.
