Parting

Synopsis


Original live music, new short films, contemporary dance and theatre come together in this multidisciplinary work that creates 'living-through' experiences of psychosis. Exploring the very essence of a psychotic experience, ‘Parting’ was developed alongside clinical and research psychologist Dr. Vaughan Bell (Institute of Psychiatry), to create vivid sonic and visual illu­sions that transport the audience into a delusional and hallucinatory world of warped visions and skewed realities.

Review


'Visceral string music, evocative films, and sinewy choreography combine to create illusions by turn nightmarish and enchanting'

Helen Wallace, Kings Place Magazine, 2014

 

'Parting was a beautifully conceived and executed performance to music composed by Effy and Litha Efthymiou, with brilliant use of visuals by Stanislava Buevich and a stunning performance by its young dancer, Sophie Lowen' 

Gill Rowe, Trustee of The Coln Trust, 2011
