Without a word, a young woman guides us through darkly comic and poignant dialogues as she revisits the memories of a sordid and doomed romance. As wandering hands seduce and frolic, she dances and wrestles with her inner demons.

La Causeuse is a brilliant virtuosic piece of physical theatre at the crossroads of dance, mime, physical and object theatre. It focuses on visual performance and choreographic installation, placing body and movement at the centre of Olivia Lathuillière’s artistic approach.

This is an accessible event and has little or no spoken word. This is part of Bristol Festival of Puppetry’s new programme to interrogate and develop the diversity agenda for puppetry. Delivered in association with Diverse City and Doing Things Differently, and with support from leading Deaf artist David Ellington and Bristol Physical Access Chain, Interchange is a strand of action-learning embedded at the heart of BFP17, which asks:
What is the unique role that puppetry can play in addressing the diversity agenda?

PS There is not New Visions screening tonight, instead join us for Every Suitcase Tells A Story Show & Tell at 7pm

A very fine show, full of invention, sadness and a rich, self-deprecating humour, expressed in powerful physical comedy.
