Cinquanta Urlanti Quaranta Ruggenti Sessanta Stridenti (Dewey Dell)

Cinquanta Urlanti Quaranta Ruggenti Sessanta Stridenti springs from a reflection on the ship and its inhabitants. An obscure jumble becomes the general breath: the sound of a world where the man, the wind, the ship and the sea, inextricably combined together, form the only conceivable protagonist.

V (Justin Shoulder)

Calling to life a demon for today, the creature V is manifest. In a ceremony of the senses, the theatre will become an altar for V to revel in the beauty and horror of contemporary idolatry and its fifteen minutes of fame.

Grave (Dewey Dell)

Grave is an Italian word indicating something that has a weight, that is subject to the force of gravity. The movement of this short performance is about the sensation of a precipitating body, the slowness of its gestures, while gravity makes it crash to the ground, at a stratospheric speed.

The River Eats (Justin Shoulder)

Welcome to the Land of One Thousand Distractions. Here, all the comforts of the modern world materialize in 3D as you click ‘next’. Navigating this contemporary terrain is the creature Pinky – an over-caffeinated, hyperactive, attention-deficient demon. Within the synthetic web, Pinky is lost.

The River Eats is a contemporary fable exploring distraction in the digital age and our changing relationship to the natural environment.
