In Other Words

Toisin Sanoen - In Other Words is a meditative performance in a minimalistic universe. It focuses on only one instrument: Wire. The four artists suspend and throw themselves on to steel wires, seek for a delicate balance and strive for control.

The qualities and features of the wire become visible, and so does the pain that it causes on the performers’ skin. Together the strong soundscapes, thoroughly contemplated visuals and artists’ movements create a touching body of work, compelling the audience to its grip.

The concept for Zero Gravity Company’s fourth stage production was devised by the on stage cast and has been created on an ensemble basis with members writing, sharing emotional responses and engaging in movement improvisation. Each member has directed the creative process and the rehearsals in turn. The creative mentor for the production has also made a significant contribution to the process.
