WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Jasmin Vardimon Company (JVC) is one of Britain’s most pioneering physical dance theatre companies, creating work that excites both the eye and the mind by pushing the boundaries of human physicality whilst engaging in universal, contemporary themes that strike an emotional chord. Vardimon’s powerful art of story-telling integrates multiple layers of communication - combining dance, movement, video, animation, text and music. Her sharp instincts and keen observations of human behaviour deliver beautifully precise characterisation, powerfully brought to life by her company of versatile dancers. Cast from around the world, each performer brings his/her own unique experience, with dynamic results.
A cutting edge piece of physical dance theatre, Justitia delves into the depths of the justice system, unraveling the multiple truths concealed behind a crime story. In a filmic replay of events, staged on a revolving set, the audience witnesses the action from different perspectives - at the crime scene, in the court house, inside a group therapy room, revealing new realities as a series of secrets unfold. Punctuated with provocative and insightful humour, Justitia treats us to Vardimon's unique brand of highly acute physical theatre. Fiercely athletic and beautifully detailed, this production delivers a generous mix of energetic dance, a sharp script and an exhilarating soundtrack. Contains scenes of violence and partial nudity. Running time: 2hrs 15mins (including one 20min interval)
