dreamthinkspeak DON'T LOOK BACK09/02/2008 - 16/03/2008
Don’t Look Back is a site-responsive promenade performance inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. The moment he turns his head to see Eurydice slipping down into the underworld, Orpheus is locked into a perpetual limbo – yearning for the past, aspiring to an uncertain future, unable to exist in the present. As you wander through rooms, corridors, hallways and stairwells, you will experience an accumulation of sounds, shadows, whispers, landscapes, musical fragments and fleeting film images, conveying a heightened, dreamlike state that lingers long in the subconscious.
“This is a fantastic piece of work in its ability to create atmosphere, inspire and constantly surprise. A triumph.” The Guardian
“Marvellously atmospheric. Beautifully orchestrated production. Aakin to being inside a dark, dreamy film. Sublime.” The Times
