The Gate at Sadler's Wells
I AM FALLING
29 October - 1 November 2008
Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler's Wells
Originally staged at the Gate in January 2008, I AM FALLING effortlessly blends dance and text to tell a story which is at once shocking and tender, harrowing but beautiful. The movement of three bodies in a simple space becomes a poignant metaphor for the extremes of human emotion and the damage we can cause by loving too much.
"This exquisite miniature unfolds on stage like a film and yet is
intensely alive even as it deals in the currency of death.
It is entirely itself in its urge to find a new expressive language"
