WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
With a rapidly-growing reputation for creating emotionally-arresting dance-theatre works, Wayne Parsons Dance presents a sensitive and rousing double bill exploring the theme of memory, featuring spell-binding choreography, new writing, specially-commissioned music and stage design. Vestige explores posthumous fame and what it means to be remembered. It tells the story of Livia, an enigmatic fictional celebrity who has died young. Fan-girl archivist Suki, needy portrait artist Cath and jealous biographer and ex-husband Killian all share their differing accounts of Livia as she weaves her way through their memories. The touching, sensitive and playful duet Meeting explores the contextual nature of memory recollection. A finalist at the 6th Copenhagen International Choreography Competition, this compelling duet launched Wayne Parsons Dance's international reputation for sophisticated storytelling.
