Aerial Frame Duet
Tanya Scully & Helen Von der Waydbrink

“Turning The Tables” is an exciting and poetic fusion of physical theatre, aerial and dance. Rich and layered with images, the piece is performed on and around a suspended metal frame.
The frame becomes a metaphor, a barometer, for the complex and intimate relationship between two people who share space and time together.
Ultimately the piece exposes the risk and reliance between the two, bringing a relationship to life and exploring the slow ways in which it might die.
Directed by Brenda Waite
(Additional direction by Rob Tannion)
