ED2012 Physical Review: (remor) (Res de Res)

By | Published on Tuesday 7 August 2012

It may seem a clichéd notion that good things come in small packages, but for ‘(remor)’ it is completely true. This dance performance takes place in an intimate purpose-built prison cell and immediately encourages a connection with the characters portrayed. The subject matter is equally intimate: a couple explore the disintegration of their relationship through beautiful choreography. Fast sequences verge on being animalistic, and at times acrobatic: dancers negotiating a prison bunk combine with slow balances and some touchingly pedestrian moments, taking the audience on a stunning emotional journey. Do not be discouraged by the length of the performance, though it is only 11 minutes long the impression it gives is certain to last much longer.

C nova, 2-27 Aug, times vary.
