Sensored

How can we play nicely when some of us have louder voices than others? In a surreal arena created with lights, sound and movement, two women test their limits through a series of power games as they try to find their voices in a frenetic fight over the spotlight.

Freely inspired by silent movies and clowning double-acts, Sensored is a rule-based performance that builds its logic in full view of the audience using a language of gestures derived from political speeches and exploring themes of power, control, oppression and voicelessness. With sophisticated use of simple mechanisms of lights and sound, a sharp sense of humour and poetic heroism, this movement-based and highly visual piece is a metaphor of a competitive and cruel society, where being seen and heard is all that mattes.
