Practice is a playful and intimate exploration into what we practise when we go to see theatre. Developing its logic from questions of what a person can look like, or how we recognise a body’s form, it explores means of display and physical activity that render people familiar or strange.
Two performers travel through a series of activities and relationships encompassing the quiet, the peculiar and the carefree. As they perform, their bodies are subject to different states of theatrical framing as the material that dresses them is reconstructed into a set that surrounds them.
This shift in theatrical frame signals how modes of representation are at work when we regard the shape of others, allowing corresponding changes in our reading of the performers, their relationship with each other and with those of us watching them.
