THIS PERFORMANCE IS SUITABLE FOR DEAF AND HARD-OF-HEARING
Playfully fusing contemporary dance with a cinematic live-score by Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, The Nature of Why smashes the divide between musicians, dancers and the audience, in a performance bursting with passion and joyous intensity.
Taking inspiration from the unconventional curiosity of theoretical physicist Richard Feynman, The Nature of Why explores his search for meaning in the world around us. The stage itself becomes a site of discovery as constantly shifting action invites audiences to seek out their own unique encounters; resulting in an epic and immersive theatrical experience like no other.
“This isn’t a performance you simply see or hear. It’s one you feel”. (Bristol 24/7)
Performed by an ensemble of musicians from The British Paraorchestra, The Nature of Why is composed by Will Gregory, choreographed by Caroline Bowditch, conducted by Charles Hazlewood, and directed by Caroline Bowditch and Charles Hazlewood.
Commissioned and supported by Unlimited, celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Arts Council England. Produced by The Paraorchestra and Friends.
