A contemporary couple re-enacts Hitchcock’s 1958 masterpiece, Vertigo, live. The romance, the music, the impending sense of doom, the platinum blonde hair. The deeper they get, the more exhausting this strange ritual becomes. Twisted role-play, modern relationships and sexual obsession are all tossed up in Ferguson and Barton. This new piece of dance-theatre is both homage to the master of suspense and wrecking ball to the Hollywood patriarchy. A dark fable for modern times.
Made in association with Platform Theatre.
