Goat Island: Work in Progress
A rare opportunity to witness a work-in-progress performance of the new show by Goat Island. This Chicago-based performance company are internationally acclaimed for their complex choreography and their use of original writing combined with words from television shows, films and texts. Through the planting of small fans and speakers on the body or clothing, performers start to become machines. Using movement material generated from the study of cloud formations, traffic patterns, car accidents and the circulatory system, a man shouts driving commands; an elderly dancer recalls his turbulent youth on a farm; two people tell the story of a phantom child who never existed… ”Don’t be afraid.”

Commissioned by Wiener Festwochen (Vienna Festival) and Arnolfini Live.
£6.00 / £4.00
