In every show we strive to be breathtakingly original. Choreographer Lucy Guerin’s new show for Belvoir takes this to an extreme by striving to be breathtakingly original every night.
A group of actors and dancers meet on stage and begin the show with a short conversation about… Well, we don’t know yet. Each night it will be a different conversation – just an ordinary preshow chat like you might have yourselves – and this short conversation will form the basis of the rather surprising performance that follows.
It sounds like it shouldn’t work. But in the hands of Guerin and her remarkable cast it does. The project began as a simple experiment: what happens when you put three dancers and three actors together in a room? The result is both a mesmerising cultural encounter between two art forms, and a kind of x-ray of the surprising hugeness that lies beneath our daily chitchat.
