About the event

Footnotes is a solo dance theatre performance. The show fluctuates in form throughout. It begins as a lecture whose topic, subject and purpose are almost completely obscured by jargon and pseudo-intellectual nonsense. The footnotes attached to several words in the lecture begin as semi useful if somewhat unnecessary asides and extra info but quickly devolve into more expressive outbursts, actions, impulses, dances and overshares. This starts to develop a split in the man delivering the lecture as he veers from formality to informality and is interrupted constantly by his own thoughts and desires.


About the Company:

Footnotes is a new research and development project alongside another piece Phrases with generous support from, Arts Council England, Yorkshire Dance, Dance 4, Camden People’s Theatre, De Montfort University, Curve Theatre, Lincoln University, and Attenborough Arts Centre. Lewys’s previous show Of, or At a Fairly Low Temperature was also developed with the support of CPT.
