‘…hypnotic…a haunting painterly beauty…[with] the astringent purity of a haiku poem… intense meditation in movement…the performers have a remarkable presence.”
Elisabeth Mahoney THE GUARDIAN **** Feb 2010

Two figures, two lives, multiple time spaces: TOLD BY THE WIND is a new performance of movement and text that ‘dances’ an inner landscape. Inspired by East Asian and ‘post-dramatic’ aesthetics, stories are evoked and told by embodied silences, splintered interactions, and slowed down motion.

Transformative and multi-layered, TOLD is informed by Japanese Theatre of Quietude and String Theory [Quantum physics]. Intimate and meditative, it is a requiem for the unseen; a poignant duet for two figures who never physically meet.
