Flesh and Text
Wickham Theatre, Cantocks Close, BS8 1UP
BODIES IN FLIGHT, co-directed by Sara Giddens and Simon Jones, make performance where flesh utters and words move. Performances that challenge and re-energize the conventional relationship between audiences and performers, audiences and place. Co-located in Bristol and Nottingham, their work comes from the careful and rigorous development of interdisciplinary and collaborative methods, oftenwith new technologies in cutting edge venues. Reflecting now on 30 years of performance-making, this exhibition showcases: the company’s early professional practice; the development of its interdisciplinary collaborative practice-as-research methodology; and its recent work collaborating and co-creating work with different communities.
Entrance to the exhibition is free.
Tickets for the Exhibition Launch (Friday 8 February, 5.50pm) are free, but you will need to book in advance.
