Extraordinary Bodies - Delicate
Bringing together the skill and talent of D/deaf, disabled, and non-disabled artists, Extraordinary Bodies - a vital collaboration between show-makers, Cirque Bijou, and Diverse City, a charity that champions diversity, inclusivity and equity in the performing arts.
In their new show, Bodies, four different bodies collide. A show about how things need to fall apart before they can fall into place.
Their lives are different, but one thing unites them: they’re frustrated with their bodies changing, ageing, breaking, no longer obeying. Outraged that they can’t override this. They climb, hang, balance, slide, collapse, hold and hug. They examine marks life has left on their bodies. In the background, fragments of film and audio mirror these marks in the wounds inflicted on our planet.
Jamie Beddard’s voice as a writer cuts through the noise. He throws the expected out the window. Instead, he tells us raw, relatable stories about what it means to be delicate. Come experience these characters as they implode, assess the damage, and maybe rebuild themselves. They’re fighting the grind of what’s expected. And you might feel inspired to do the same.
