Synopsis


Between dance and physical theatre, Peeping Tom's shows astonish audiences with unsettling imagery, humour and phenomenal choreography that defies logic.


This one explores perceptions of childhood.


An eerie forest of towering trees and menacing cliffs reveals bizarre and disturbing scenes that hold within them the fears and dreams of a girl caught up in traumatic situations.


Uncannily conveying the body language of the young while swirling around the borders of reality, Child features a mezzo-soprano as a child and seemingly elastic dancers who emerge from the scenery in endlessly surprising moves.


The Olivier Award-winning Belgian group follows earlier, much admired productions of Mother and Father at the Barbican with the final part of its family-themed trilogy.


Developed from impressions of childhood shared by the whole company including co-directors Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier, the last instalment results from their fascination with the human psyche and the construction of identity.
