SOLO FOR A BODY.
(Four?) bodies perform a languid backward roll, punctuated by moments of control and desire.
Sustained balances and extreme flexibility summon the knife's edge between trained capability and failure.
A muse, a crucifix, a frozen chicken; as the sculptural and sinister potential of the body is activated in slow succession, the organic immediacy of the body slips through its contrived images.
As Solo unravels so do its bodies, confronting moments of care, desire, violence, relating and vulnerability along the way.
