DetailsA wild and circuitous exploration of the body, this intimate performance uses pervasive media and a diverse cast of dolls to consider what it is to be alive and human. Two charismatic performers, live sound and video design animate a series of compelling, communal interactions. Seated in a small group in the transformed Pit, the experience can only begin when you have all attached your heart rate monitors. Winners of this year's Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award, Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari make bold, intriguing work that is full of visual surprises. Collaborating with technologists, they have created this unusual theatrical event as a 'paean to life in all its dark beauty and complexity.'
