Creation 2015
Who Killed Bambi? is a collaborative work between dance, theatre, music and stage design, bringing together an exciting team of artists consisting of choreographer Renaud Wiser, theatre director and international associate at The Royal Court Theatre Richard Twyman, composer, cellist and artist in residence at The South Bank Centre Oliver Coates, installation artists JaneJaney, long time collaborator and light designer Chris Swain, and a cast of five fabulous dancers. It takes inspiration from recent political examples of individuals standing against the group and the subsequent hunt to silence them, in particular the case of Edward Snowden and the NSA scandal. The work engages in a narrative evoking both the natural hunt of a pack of wolves and a dinner party where the food is one of the guests. In this thought provoking work, the performers evolve on and around a large-scale fur installation, which transform the stage with striking animalistic imagery,
