Caravan of Lies
Roll up, roll up! Vincent Dance Theatre return to Arnolfini with their new show about flying imaginations and failing bodies, applause, spotlights, popcorn and lies, compered by a clown who has seen better days. Set in an old-style circus ring, Puchalo, the world’s smallest bareback rider, recreates her act without a horse. A man on crutches suspends himself in mid air and falls, again and again. Behind the moments of glamour lies an exhaustion caused by too many years on the road. Faded dreams. Bodies that could once do extraordinary things. The athletic, punishing dance of Caravan of Lies portrays the bickering, failings and fallings of a tired family who live on the edges of society. “Five impressive performers display a startling physicality…. stroke of genius” (The Stage)
Commissioned by Yorkshire Dance & Arnolfini live.
£8.00 / £6.00
