Jasmin Vardimon "Park"

Autumn 2005

Prepare to be stunned by this master of physical dance theatre. Jasmin Vardimon is one of the most exciting and accessible choreographers working in the UK today. Recipient of a string of awards including the prestigious Jerwood Award for Choreography in 2000, her work is powerful, unusual and often startling.

PARK is an urban oasis, a place of refuge from ordinary life where eight characters play, fight, fall in love and learn to survive. In this playground of relationships, young lovers wrestle naked in a historic fountain, a graffiti artist sprays his story, a busker finds his only appreciative audience in a bag lady and a flag-waving bully rants worn out political beliefs.

Their stories intertwine creating a modern day fairy tale that is alternately sharp, funny and cruel.

PARK delivers fresh statements about our time, treating us to Vardimon’s insightful humour and beautifully detailed movement. PARK is a breathtaking collision of highly acute physical theatre, text, athletic dance and funky music.
