About Once Standing

The world has come to an end. Civilisation as we know it has ceased to exist. In the absence of an ever-present society, the last two people left on Earth turn to imagination and resilience to start from scratch. Having no one but themselves, their new reality takes on unexpected guises: humorous situations, desperate isolation and inventive past-times are all to take on the non-stage. Elaborate headpieces, human puppetry, experimental mating rituals and aerial acts interplay with innovative pair work as they explore their counterweighting relationship. In this universe you can shoot from a banana, species meld, men have babies and cannibalism is funny. Challenging the presence of the audience, the performers follow their personal needs and dance like no one is watching. Get ready to be excited, moved, confused, to relate to the despair and freedom that aloneness can bring, and to recognise yourself in the skin of an alien.
