Pairs: Gypsy Queen / L’uomo
Tue 19 Feb
Pairs are specially curated evenings of discovery – each is a double bill of a theatre performance twinned with a short dance work.
Gypsy Queen is a critically acclaimed love story about two men who find each other in the most unlikely world; the world of professional boxing.
It explores LGBTQI visibility in sport, faith and sexuality and the notion of masculinity, played out with biting humour, heart and soul.
L’uomo (translating in Italian as ’The Man’) is a short dance theatre duet centered around two men, entwining themselves through intimate gestures that interact and reciprocate the invitation to connect to another, examining what means to be touched, with at the heart of it, a play of hands. Hands testifying to trust, confidence and simplicity within the shelter of love.
Pairs is supported by Surf The Wave.
