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.
