Picnic is a 20 minutes outdoor physical theatre work by Etta Ermini Dance Theatre. The performance features a young couple whose lush and joyful picnic is disrupted by the quirks and pitfalls of their relationship. Audience interaction, food, comedy and a highly dynamic movement vocabulary make Picnic an enjoyable experience for children and adults alike.
‘Picnic is an ambitious dance-theatre piece exploring themes of relationship through movement, dance and a healthy dose of humor. Audiences responded very well: adults and children alike looked like they would not have missed a single move for anything in the world – not even the treats cheekily offered to them by the performers! Etta Ermini Dance Theatre is a very promising dance theatre
company capable of exploring many art forms, playing with and pushing boundaries until they form an exhilarating spectacle.’ Lelia Greci, Artistic Director, Fuse Medway Festival
