A Forest
On from 07 Apr 2009 till 09 Apr 2009
Barbican
by Pacitti Company
Genre(s): Drama

About: A Forest

Exploring myth, money and magic, A Forest is a provocative fairytale for grown-ups where skin is turned into wallets, straw is spun into gold and where storming off alone can mean the difference between life and death.

With an uncompromising approach to image making, Pacitti Company arrests the senses in this ritualistic performance which bears many similarities to a stylised séance. Join this intimate event which fuses cutting edge sound with live performance.

A stab wound in the heart of an easy life, this is desperately uneasy theatre.
