A unique site-specific performance combining dance, physical theatre, music and visual imagery inspired by light and created in the exceptional spirit of The Karavan Ensemble (A Ship of Fools). Lamps, light sources and related stories collected from households across Brighton breathe life into this immersive experience and inspires the Ensemble's venture into the realms of human nature.
This site-specific production brought to you by The Karavan Ensemble is based on the concept of light and darkness. Borrowing lamps or any other light sources donated to the show by the people of Brighton with any stories that may be entwined within these objects helpsconnect the audience strongly to what they are witnessing. Yael Karavan believes These in turn breathe life into the piece and become a part of the landscape and soundscape of the performance.Illuminated only by these household lamps and LED lights, Anima takes the audience through an interactive journey, touching all of their senses and transforming dance into an experience. People who donate are given a free ticket to the show plus the opportunity to attend three free workshops in writing and storytelling, which is an added incentive to be part of this ensembles creation. To donate any lights email@example.com
