Charles Linehan Company

11 Feb 2016

Charles Linehan returns to Brighton Festival with a contrasting double bill of new works. My Mother’s Tears mines the personal history of William Trevitt and Michael Nunn (BalletBoyz) performing classical ballet mime from The Royal Ballet repertoire with unpredictable consequences.

Drawing on their repertoire, Linehan plays with its language and context to create a work that is both poignant and irreverent. In A Quarter Plus Green, ideas of transformation are applied to movement, light and sound in a unique new setting at Brighton Dome Corn Exchange. With enigmatic simplicity and layers of detail, six performers are slowly submerged in an escalating wall of sound and distilled environments are undone by the overlapping of choreographic episodes.
