Choreographer Jonathan Burrows and composer Matteo Fargion present two
parts of a trio of performances that have been seen across 28 countries in over 200
performances. The Quiet Dance and Speaking Dance continue their gentle
exploration into how the relationship between music and dance is percieved, and
the fragile but permeable boundaries between the two worlds. Their
performances are a formal but humourous meditation on the nature of
communication, and the relationship between each other and with the audience.
A surprisingly endearing conceptual comedy
The Times, London
Absurdist self-indulgence you’ll be thinking, but what you see is revelation and joy.
The Evening Standard, London
Captivating, inscrutable , dazzling The Daily Telegraph, London
By now we ought to be accustomed to the surprises the wry, spry and elegant pairing ofJonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion keep springing on us, but somehow we’re not;
they’ve always got an extra rabbit in the hat to take us unawares. With Speaking Dance
there’s a whole family of baby rabbits in that roomy hat.
