Think about a classroom. How is everyone sat? Everyone is sat at their desks, facing the same way. What is left deals with spatial structures that shape human communication culture. We see it in theatres, while waiting to be served at counters, the hierarchy in a courtroom, in school and church, as well as from advertising screens in underground stations. All these spaces not only demand, but also structure the gaze attention of bodies in space.
International award-winning dance and circus company Overhead Project bring their new show What is Left to the UK. Mixing contemporary dance with group acrobatics, the show explores our relationship with different spaces and how they influence our communication.
Reminiscent of a catwalk or military parade, five performers occupy the space and are simultaneously consumed by it. A rhythmic, energetic, sometimes intimate, and exhilarating performance.
