Some events in life call into question our entire understanding of the world, exposing a reality where anything can change at any moment. Drawing on the universal human experience of grief and loss, Concrete Impermanence prompts audiences to reflect on how global events impact on their own experiences of trauma. Sculptural objects and performers connect on stage to create an ever shifting set of states; the dancers are at home with the objects in one moment, then attempting to build with them, sheltering under them, crushed or concealed by them. Through these relationships and environments we reveal the fragility of human existence; in its tragedy, its poetic beauty, in the inevitable reality of a fragile existence and in the acceptance that this is ok. Impermanence is the only thing that is concrete.
Concrete Impermanence is created with both deaf and hearing audiences in mind.
