The Eclypse of Pygmy

Autorenschaft
Beschreibung

"There's a stronger sense of Russian-inspired wildness and creativity, though, in Adam Read's movement piece Pygmy Eclipse, playing at the Arches later in the evening. Read is a member of Derevo, the award-winning Russian dance-clowning troupe; and in this piece, he uses his fabulously sinewy body, and a inventive range of human, animal, and almost foetal movement, to evoke four or five strange and powerful tragi-comic characters, each locked in some kind of relationship with a small, battered stone that might represent the sun, the earth or life itself. The score ranges from repetitive cosmic-panic sound to an inspired use of rock and country music; and when Read invades the audience to writhe high above us, dripping sweat on to our dazzled upturned faces before walking off, he leaves behind a feeling of a few lives lived, and of something significant seen and experienced."
