Philippe Decoufle Company - Panorama
Philippe Decouflé – a choreographer, dancer, mime artist and director, his latest piece, Panorama draws on his company’s extensive repertoire, dating back to 1983 with Vague Café.
This is no ordinary retrospective, instead a wholly original new production has emerged in which Decouflé and company ‘re-write’ their past glories with generous helpings of humour and astonishingly full throttled performances.
Performed by seven dancers, the evening will take in elements from eight earlier works. Among them will be Codex (1986) and its army of strange flipper-equipped microbes, Triton (1990), which plays with every dance and circus cliché imaginable, Shazam (1998), with its kaleidoscope of frames, surfaces and mirrors and 2006’ Sombrero, which plays with images of light and shadow.
