A charming and intriguing encounter between two mature men: one a dancer; the other, a violinist. In his signature fluid and pure style, Paul-André Fortier propels himself weightlessly across the stage, in dialogue with surprising live sounds performed by American Malcolm Goldstein.
With a vibrancy and tenderness between them, the pair skilfully lure the audience into the heart of their poetic world. Performer and choreographer, Fortier is internationally renowned for dance that is marked by innovation, renewal and a desire to defy convention.
Running on Empty is the story of Man, Woman and their repeated collision over time. Absurd and sometimes devastating, it is about resilience, struggle and our determination to survive.
Touch Wood is a biennial season of works in progress at The Place.
Each night in Touch Wood comes together at the last moment and no two nights are the same: perfect miniatures, embryonic epics and unforeseen consequences - a safe Place to risk all on a bare stage and one of the least predicatble events this autumn.
Touch Wood is a performance complement to Choreodrome, where every other summer The Place's studios are given over to artists free of charge to pursue research and development projects.
For the past two years Still House's Dan Canham has been capturing conversations with people of the fens in East Anglia.
