Tickets for Philippe Decoufle Company: Panorama
The ingenious imagination of Philippe Decoufle has been delighting audiences for nearly 30 years. A choreographer, dancer, mime artist and director, his latest piece, Panorama draws on his company's extensive repertoire, dating back to 1983 with Vague Cafe.
This is no ordinary retrospective, instead a wholly original new production has emerged in which Decoufle and company 're-write' their past glories with generous helpings of humour and astonishingly full throttled performances.
Performed by seven dancers, the evening will take in elements from eight earlier works. Among them will be Codex (1986) and its army of strange flipper-equipped microbes, Triton (1998), which plays with every dance and circus cliche imaginable, Shazam (1998), with its kaleidoscope of frames, surfaces and mirrors and 2006's Sombrero, mixing video and Chinese shadows to Claude Ponti's texts. Decoufle's Panorama is set to be a true spectacle.
