LIMITS OF THINGS, OR THE MESS
Four vignettes &
two one-act plays for movement theatre
Mark Conway Thompson
This movement theatre performance, the theme of which is limitations, wants to challenge the notions that anything is possible, that all progress is good. That limitations challenge us to a fight we must win at all costs. These compositions reflect on the question of when boundaries should be accepted, and when not … on themes of age, accumulation, conundrums and existence.
A portrait of an ordinary man in his daily grind. A song about someone living in memories. The meditation of an old guy dreaming about going beyond where he has been. A sculpture come to life to tell a story of captivity. And a parable for our times.
