In 2016 Jasmin Vardimon Company presents a brand new adaptation of the classic tale, Pinocchio. Based on the original book by Collodi and performed by Vardimon’s multi-talented dancers, Pinocchio will bring to life the famous marionette as he embarks on a fantastic journey to become a human boy.
Showcasing Vardimon’s uniquely theatrical choreographic and directorial style, Pinocchio will combine physical theatre, quirky characterisation, innovative technologies, text and dance to examine the idea of what it means to be human, a notion central to the Company’s existing work.
Presented with unwavering passion through the distinctive and breath-taking physicality of the JVC dancers, Pinocchio will take audiences on a wonderful journey of discovery.
With insightful humour, engaging drama and an acute observation of behaviour the work will explore what it is to be human through the parameters of this timeless and beloved fable.
“Vardimon is a powerful voice in physical theatre and the daring movements she creates leave scars on the memory.” The Guardian
