In collaboration with Arc Stockton, and in association with The Albany, Deptford
Using the lives of physical performers as inspiration, Upswing asks what happens as you get older, when your profession requires super human strength and skills, but ageing has gradually taken away the tools of your trade?
‘What happens in the winter’ is an entertaining and arresting mix of aerial, theatre and dance that treads a humorous path through the minds and bodies of two women who still want to fly.
Created by aerial director Vicki Amedume, theatre director Gemma Fairlie and writer Sonia Hughes.
‘What happens in the winter’ has be in development throughout 2012 with the support of the Arc, Stockton and The Albany, Deptford.
