From birth until death we develop and learn to abide by societal norms. What is the cost of a neglected nature in a world of insatiable consumption? Intimate, poetic storytelling by a solo aerial fabric performer on a quest for personal truth, using spoken word, field recordings and low-frequency vibrations.
Created and performed by: Sophie Page Hall.
Supported by Jackson’s Lane
Family Portrait captures personal experiences of Eastern European upbringing. While struggling to remember the truth, surreal imagery compliments twisted memories.
What has really happened? Perhaps you remember it all wrong. The family members unveil their realities in this dynamic and complex work. Intertwined bodies and technical, unexpected connections disarrange their own bloodline. Searching for freedom, one by one they are forced to leave the frame.
Do you notice strangers in the picture?
Family Portrait is a live performance continuation of a visual album, created by KAMIENSKI. together with photographer Noel Shelley.
Choreographer: Andre Kamienski
Our wonderfully wicked lovers Sir and Lady Grue prove just how far they’re willing to go in order to get their happily ever after. However, the two must first break a curse put upon them in order to stay together forever. A battle between love and lust, right and wrong and the heart and mind. In a land where darkness thrives purity is hard to come by, however are we all born bad or do we have a choice? Through melodrama, dance theatre, acro and mime we construct the tragic tale of The Gruesome Twosome. ""
