A Laban Theatre premiere.
Two women, in a world imposed upon them, while away time. They manage, they flourish, they fail. There is nothing to be done but they do it together.
Sarah Dowling and Kath Duggan, who met creating with Punchdrunk, have joined forces for the first time to create and perform Us Then.
These two artists have come together with a common desire to combine theatrical realism with the more poetic and visceral stuff of dance. Us Thentakes its inspiration from Samuel Beckett’s Waiting For Godot.
Beckett, when asked what his play was about, said ‘It’s all symbiosis.’ Us Then takes this idea of symbiosis and the landscape of Godot to spark the creation of a new dance theatre work.
A Compass Commission presented by The Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership. Compass Commissions is a series of new dance works supported by Arts Council England.
