WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A curated evening of live dance, music and film. The Intention, choreographed by Adrienne Hart is a dark and transformative dance work for the stage, inspired by ?The Invention of Morel', a novel by Adolfo Bioy Casares.
Movement, sound and innovative laser light show combine in this gripping and powerful dance performance. What makes our behaviour uniquely human? Touching and emotionally charged, Empathy reflects on what influences us to empathise with others. Five dancers jostle for position - folding, lifting and balancing against one another as they navigate through the award winning Numen's beguiling laser light design. Taking inspiration from the work of psychologist Professor Simon Baron-Cohen (Zero Degrees of Empathy), Empathy is a truly theatrical experience where movement, sound and lighting combine and contribute in equal part.
