I feel I just go round and round. Nothing is ever new or different. I watch and being watched it all seems very familiar, but at the same time…very far away. The words all blur into one another and yet the difference is palpable. I sense the end is somewhere close by, but the author never writes the last page. I must go on, motion soothes. I feel anxiety, pressure, fear, what if I don’t make a decision? What if I do? I am stuck in the zone between action and inaction, a catatonic state of detached awareness. I suckle at the breast of the mother, feeding me until I burst.

Then Awkwardly We Danced

You are watching. There is a pause. This is a spatial agreement between you and me. Between me and the shadows, the shadows and I. Shaking off the dusty thoughts at 3am in the dark, thoughts of pirates in your wine and knowing your attractive face, listening to the whispers between a broken clock and a forgotten moment. When the shadows lift you can see. She’s sitting in a corner counting minutes that pass her by. When the ramblings are left unreigned a storm can take place in your glass.

Created and performed by Gita Bezard, Alissa Claessens, Natasha Commons, Fran Middleton, Jo Willers

The Invisible Workforce

Who works before the sun rise? And then again after dark? Who does the dirty work without thanks? And what sort of lives do they lead? These are stories from the ‘Invisible Workforce’, largely unseen and largely unsung. That is… until now. Brace yourself for a fusion of music, movement, conflicts and true stories. This performance explores the lives of cleaners; their sense of humour, the difficult choices they make, and the challenges of being ‘invisible’. Using verbatim text, this is a performance that comes clean

Created and performed by Catherine Bjorlo, Fleur Hockey, Trixi Oldfield, Emily Taylor, Amy White
