Vertebra Theatre is a physical and visual theatre company that creates international devising, puppetry and film work.


Their previous work includes Dark Matter, which had a sold-out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.


Now, they're taking their piece entitled 'At the Heart of Things' to the Blue Elephant Theatre from 19 to 22 April.


'At the Heart of Things' is a dance-puppetry performance inspired by Oscar Wilde's De Profundis.


Movement improvisation, visual imagery and devised text create a contemporary adaptation that dives into female sexuality, queer identity and homophobia.


Synopsis


In a dystopian world where growing fear takes centre stage, two young women Lilly and Nina are dancing in a nightclub.


When a gunman enters and opens fire, nothing will be the same again.


Lilly tries to make sense in a senseless world.


What does it mean to be a woman?


What does it mean to fall in love?


Out of her frustration, Oscar Wilde will be born, to guide her, page by page, towards rediscovering her sexuality and womanhood.
