Fathers and Sons
The Place, London, 2017
Five moving stories of sons, childhood, the absence of paternal love, memory and self-embodiment.
Inspired by the dancer's true experiences, I was invited to come in as Visual Director.
I decided to implement multimedia, video art and evocative projection. The memory infused atmosphere with the approach of German Tanztheater would play out these unique experiences.
A potent blast of tanztheater – the “dance theatre” style of Pina Bausch – provides the highlight of the evening.... the sheer joyfulness of the work’s resolution will bring a tear to your eye.
