The Philippe Decouflé Company rewrites its history with a humorous ‘retrospective’.
The ingenious imagination of Philippe Decouflé has been delighting audiences for nearly 30 years. A choreographer, dancer, mime artist and director, his latest piece, Panorama draws on his company’s extensive repertoire, dating back to 1983 with Vague Café.
Performed by seven dancers, the evening takes in elements from eight earlier works. Among them will be: Codex and its army of strange flipper-equipped microbes; Triton, which plays with every dance and circus cliché imaginable; Shazam, with its kaleidoscope of frames, surfaces and mirrors; and 2006’s Sombrero, mixing video and Chinese shadows to Claude Ponti’s texts.
Panorama is a UK premiere.
