Wallflower (Quarantine, UK): 24 - 26 Sept, Project Arts Centre
'Immensely touching, totally human yet also intellectually rigorous in their examination of the nature of performance and the raising of questions about what makes theatre seem real and reality so strongly theatrical.' - The Guardian
Wallflower is a dance marathon, a game that alters according to the players.
Three performers are challenged to remember every dance they’ve ever danced. Each performance is different, as they choose what they want to reveal, what story of themselves they want to tell…
Like much of Quarantine’s work, Wallflower serves as a form of portraiture – of real lives being lived. It makes us remember our own dances – the awkward, joyful and forgotten ones. It asks us to think about how we choose to be involved in the world, and what we sit out. The dances left un-danced.
Winners of the 2008 Dublin Fringe Festival Award for Best Production (Susan & Darren), Quarantine are a unique voice in British theatre, internationally acclaimed for their experiments with everyday life.
