Bramwell, Murray Ross
MetadataShow full item record
This new show has all the signatures of a Genty production. Located next to a miniature chair, white lines on a black backdrop provide the geometric paradox of the vanishing point. From the first we are intrigued with an idea - but one that doesn’t bear too much scrutiny. Instead we are propelled by Rene Aubry’s music, a slick blend of world music samples - didgeridoo, Arabic dub and irresistible dance beats - all thrumming through the tannoys. The performers, some initially planted in the audience, take to the stage, peachily lit in Patrick Riou’s sumptuous lighting.
