By Bertolt Brecht... A Dance Theatre Adaptation
BOOK NOW - @ Bristol Old Vic - 25th April - !!
In this groundbreaking new production from Bristol based Impermanence – the company that brought you critically acclaimed hit shows Da-Da-Darling, SEXBOX and film The Ballet of the Nations – we follow BAAL, our anti-hero along their path of consumption, greed and ultimate destruction, echoing the spiralling events of our current ecological crisis.
This stunning, cathartic, multi-media production, featuring a dual channel film and lusciously designed costumes and set, sees four dancers and a musician grapple with love, sexuality, art, fame, betrayal, nature and lust.
Packed with extreme physicality, dark humour and beautiful poetry, BAAL will premiere at the Bristol Old Vic on the 25th April, and will be available for touring to small & mid scale venues, as well as 'found spaces' from Autumn '19.
Based on work conceived and developed by Tyrrell Jones (Knaїve Theatre), Josh Ben Tovim & Roseanna Anderson.
