Delicate

Four different bodies collide. A show about how things need to fall apart before they can fall into place.

Their lives are different, but one thing unites them: they’re frustrated with their bodies changing, ageing, breaking, no longer obeying. They climb, hang, balance, slide, collapse, hold and hug. They examine marks life has left on their bodies. Film and audio fragments mirror these marks in the wounds inflicted on our planet. These characters are fighting the grind of what’s expected. And you might feel inspired to do the same.

All performances of Delicate are chilled, BSL interpreted, audio described and captioned.

Delicate is presented by Extraordinary Bodies. Co-produced with Figurteatret i Nordland (Nordland Visual Theatre) and Theatre Royal Plymouth.

Extraordinary Bodies is the collaboration between Diverse City and Cirque Bijou.
