BACK LEFT Brings Athletic Curiosity To Adelaide Fringe
The Back Left Project presents the Australian Premiere of Back Left at the Adelaide Fringe, February 16 - March 3, 2019 at Live From Tandanya in the Tandanya Theatre.
Wake up your senses! Back Left explores life beyond an ordinary day. Using intense physicality and creative storytelling we invite audiences to discover new worlds hidden in daily activities through an immersive physical theatre experience. We attempt this with humor and courage.
Back Left is the culmination of movement research on daily activities. For the exploration we gave ourselves limitations and obstacles for eating breakfast, taking a shower, going for a walk, etc. In the research we were ridiculous. We had many conversations, a lot of skin, endless questions, a few falls, laughs, unexpected textures, flavors, and we took our time. Created by Ezra LeBank and Isabel Aguerrebere. Performed by Ezra LeBank.
