“Revision” at The Place

This is a private world of a woman’s memory, full of subtleties and glimpses of what might have been.

Thank you to everyone who came to support our new piece, “Revision” at The Place, London as part of Resolution! Festival.

We were so pleased to see so many people in the audience (all 243 of you!) and were grateful for such a warm welcome.

As part of the festival, each performance is given two written reviews, one by a professional critic and one by an early career writer.  Here is Josephine Leask’s review reprinted below:

“A mound of chairs precariously piled up down stage and three women, self-absorbed in various activities, create a brooding Bauschian beginning to nylon theatre’s Revision. A tender yet hostile duet between two of the dancers is watched by a third, who nostalgically fingers through a pile of clothes.  While the movement material is hesitant and at times ponderous, there is also an intensity shared by the women. The stillness and thoughtfulness behind each action is a credit to the performers and there is an understated intrigue in the way in which they interact. This is a private world of a woman’s memory, full of subtleties and glimpses of what might have been.”

An additional thank you to the performers & designers for helping to create this work, Alicia Clarke for the photography and OSO Arts Centre & Anthropologie.

  1. So sad I missed this!! I’m producing LIFT at Soho Theatre this month, so I had to be in the theatre for my show that night. Let me know if you’re going to be on somewhere else in London soon! Jim x @theukjz
