Jasmin Vardimon Company presents Park
“Extraordinary… a sexy and beautiful dance piece” New Statesman
Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Jasmin Vardimon returns with her critically-acclaimed dance theatre production, Park.
Park is an urban oasis, a place of refuge from ordinary life where eight characters play, fight, fall in love and learn to survive. In this playground of relationships, young lovers wrestle in a historic fountain, a graffiti artist sprays his story, a busker finds his only appreciative audience in a bag lady and a flag-waving bully rants worn out political beliefs. Their stories intertwine creating a modern day fairytale that is alternately sharp, funny and cruel.
Reworked for 2014 with new 3D imaging, Park presents a breathtaking collision of highly acute physical theatre, text, athletic dance and funky music, delivering fresh statements about our time.
"Dance that is so alive with dramatic narratives and a vivid mix of other media - text and visuals, including 3D imaging. aren't "add-ons", they're truly integral - that it could just as easily be described as compellingly dynamic physical theatre." The Herald
“Vividly physical and quirky performances” The Times
"Highly original material, beautifully executed by a talented cast" Independent on Sunday
