The Buttercup and The Crutch Double Bill
October 30, 2014 @ 7:30 PM
The Karla Shacklock Company present 'The Crutch' and 'The Buttercup.' Raw, charged and universally resonant, 'The Crutch' and 'The Buttercup' offer simple yet powerful stories about crisis and hope.
Created and performed using the company's own distinctive practice, the performers decide the structure of the work live in the moment of performance - meaning that each performance is completely unique!
The story is told through extremely physical contact work, a vocabulary which swings from violence to tear jerking tenderness, a pounding live score and a series of everyday, continuously transforming, objects.
Seeking the extraordinary in all things ordinary and delivering original dance theatre across the UK and beyond...
Co-commissioned by Pavilion Dance South West, Ferment at Bristol Old Vic, Theatre Bristol and Swindon Dance, with support from Tobacco Factory Theatre, Arnolfini and Arts Council England.
