Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

Delicate

Company: Extraordinary Bodies
Running time: 1h 00min approx

Delicate revolves around four different characters united in their frustration at their bodies changing, ageing, breaking and no longer obeying. They delicately climb, hang, balance, slide, collapse and hug through the three acts of chaos, acceptance and renewal. As they examine the marks that life has left on their bodies, fragments of film and audio mirror their scars through the damage that has been inflicted on the earth.

Delicate combines acrobatics, group dance, and ballet from an ex-professional dancer who hasn’t performed professionally for the past fifty years.
