DAYS LIKE THESE
Tour Ready

“An incredible fusion of movement, lighting design, visual imagery & emotion”.
On The House

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Days Like These explores the varied ways we as humans express our emotions from one day to the next. Through a series of emotive vignettes, the audience is invited to reflect on and revisit the best and worst days of their lives. Drawing on ideas that our universal differences make us the same, a creative team of very different people bravely peel back their layers to share stories of joy, loss, frustration and change.

Seamlessly weaving together text, movement, projection and sound, Days Like These examines emotional thresholds and attempts to hold a mirror up for all to ask . . . what kind of day is today?

 

ABOUT THE WORK
Days Like These, both expands and compresses the universal nature of difference by taking everyday human experiences and placing them in a theatrical context. Stylistically, the work reflects the nonsensicality of Louis Carroll and Caryl Churchill. The work is made up 4 performing artists in 13 fractured scenes that are presented as a smorgasbord of short emotive stories. The stage is painted with images and infra-red bodies, and the original score is haunting and infectious. The overall filmic design of the show makes it both bite-size and full length.
