An ensemble company, that works through ideas, physicalities and whims via improvisational structures and individual experience. The Ticket’s work is informed by ‘dance theatre’…by exposing humour in art; in existing and past art forms …by enjoying the body as flawed; the body as gendered… by social dance… by the importance of presentation, performance, audience… by theatricalities: the stage, the audience, the framing of performance, the bow, the before and after, the ‘offstage’… by enjoying all dance forms as valid. Lead and developed by Lexi Bradburn.
The Ticket Theatre Dance premiered its first full scale piece ‘Cosi fan Tutu’ last year at Siobhan Davies Studios: a little look at Opera through dance and cliché.
A series of endings.
Climax – wind up – completion – grand farewell – close – termination – fatality – catastrophe – culmination – punch line – pinacle – result – resolution – curtain – last word – expiry – realisation – outcome –eventuality…
Finale is a light-hearted nudge at the formulae of traditional performance artforms and asks whether a series of endings – spectacles – applauses, is enough to make a whole. It looks into combinations of music and movement, silence and space; which each toy with different results to create ‘resolve’.
Will the dancers tire of always peaking? Will so many endings confuse the time for curtain?
