Choreography of An Arguement Round a Table
An unpredictable and riotous physical performance that unpicks what it is to be in an argument, and how we win and lose while our trousers are down. The setting around a table could be a pub, the UN Security Council or a family dinner in Hampstead.The work provokes questions on the absurdities of political stances, self-belief, power, manipulation and confrontation whilst revealing how the physical body exists within social and intellectual constructs. 5 striking performers and a piano create an unpredictable and riotous physical performance that unpicks what it is to be in an argument, and how we win and lose while our trousers are down.Punctuated by Matteo Fargion's often hauntingly simple piano studies, the group appropriate provocative actions and statements, like puppets, operating a formal, tight, rhythmical, structure, within which messy, confusing ideas can exist.
