Playfully fusing live orchestral music with contemporary dance, The Nature of Why blurs the divide between performer and audience for an experience bursting with passion and joyous intensity.
This isn’t a performance you simply see or hear. It’s one you feel – Bristol 24/7
With a cinematic score by Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, The Nature of Why takes inspiration from the unconventional curiosity of theoretical physicist Richard Feynman and his search for meaning in the world around us.
Audiences join performers on the Lyric stage and are invited to explore the constantly shifting action, seeking out their own unique encounters, resulting in an epic and immersive theatrical experience like no other.
