Sweat Baby Sweat is a new step into the investigation on the symbiosis of storytelling and abstraction from choreographer Jan Martens.

Working together with a video designer and a composer, Sweat Baby Sweat becomes a work in which composed music and projected text take an important role next to the moving composition. The departure point is the most cliché theme ever: a relationship between a man and a woman. By adding love song lyrics and by moments even mellow music one would expect a very theatrical approach, but the contrary is true. The result is a one hour performance in which a lifetime is passing.

Mature subject matter.

Please note this event has been moved from the Eric Harvie Theatre to the Margaret Greenham Theatre.
