Witness, the main piece in this double-bill, turns the spotlight on mental health in an original and moving portrayal of how loved ones’ cope, when mental health problems take hold of someone close.
Featuring a rich mix of dance and movement styles, intimate solos, emotive duets and powerful ensembles combine to create a view of mental health, which you simply won’t forget. Touching, sad, funny and absurd, this is relevant and up-to-the-minute dance theatre.
Words Unspoken, a dynamic short work, is the opening piece of the double-bill and features five dancers performing flawlessly formed movements in a striking and synchronized style. Dynamic, brave and resonant, Words Unspoken is a physical representation of stories collected from the dancers and choreographers – untold secrets, memories and events that they have concealed from others. The work was first created on Spanish dance company La Mov.
