Presented by Lucy Ireland and Jim Manganello / Shotput
A contemporary couple scrambles to re-enact Hitchcock’s 1958 masterpiece Vertigo, live.
The consuming romance, the sweeping music, the impending sense of doom, the platinum blonde hair. The deeper they get, the more exhausting this strange ritual becomes. Gender roles, modern relationships and sexual obsession are all tossed up in Ferguson and Barton.
This new piece of dance-theatre is both homage to the master of suspense and wrecking ball to the Hollywood patriarchy. A dark fable for modern times.
This is a collaboration with Shotput, Glasgow’s new physical theatre company.
Developed at The Work Room, Dance Base, Summerhall and Platform Theatre. Supported by Creative Scotland.
Age restriction: 14+
About the company
At Shotput, theatre is a sport. We devise work from a physical starting point to address moral, political and poetic challenges in our contemporary world. We hope to be a meeting place between dance and theatre, and this inaugural piece is co-created by actor Jim Manganello and dancer Lucy Ireland.
