About the Show/Event
Information for Peeping Tom - Father (Vader) at Barbican Centre, West End (Dance or ballet). The phenomenal choreography and enigmatic visual imagery of Peeping Tom plunge viewers into the realm between fantasy and reality in this empathetic, swirling and surprising portrait of ageing. Towering walls surround the visiting room of a care home where an elderly man, also a father, counts his final days. Revealed in shifting scenes that speak of isolation, divinity, ridicule and melancholia, we learn more of his complex identity and lived experiences. As people and objects move around the figure, we are drawn into hallucinatory moments in which memories make way for something far less lucid. Astonishing dance, song and live music are interwoven into this incisive and compassionate piece. Father forms the first part of the company's surreal trilogy on families echoing their own reminiscences, mysteries and hopes.
