Des gestes blancs

Des gestes blancs & Ensemble - Spring Forward 2019

Des gestes blancs (white gestures) is a duo for a man and a child.

Playing with the imbalance of their bodies and weights, a father and a son try to find precision and take a chance on tenderness. Based on improvisation and play, this duo intended for family audiences subtly questions how affiliation and fatherhood can be represented on stage. Cheerful and touching, these white gestures will connect you with your inner child.

Ensemble

Des gestes blancs & Ensemble - Spring Forward 2019

Ensemble is a collaboration between choreographers Lucy Boyes and Robbie Synge, and three performers in their 60s and 70s. On stage, they share a journey of interactions that lays bare strengths, wobbles and possibilities together.  Ensemble is also a political challenge to an ageing society and to the performing arts sector regarding the visibility, voice and profile of older people.
