Nosedive

Nosedive uses contemporary theatre and circus to look at how cooperation, trust, security and vulnerability shift at varying stages of life, especially as we get older.

About Nosedive

A child climbs onto an adult’s shoulders and they look out. They see hope. They see destruction. One generation after another reaches higher, sees further, hurtling toward a future they can’t control.

Pushing themselves to the limit, dancing with abandon, colliding into each other, children and adults perform feats and leaps that grow ever bolder, ever riskier, revealing an intricate bond of fear, resilience and recklessness. As their roles are subtly reordered, this intergenerational show becomes an unlikely metaphor for how we consider age, pitting our instinct to protect against wild abandon. Directed by Scotland-based Superfan’s Ellie Dubois and Pete Lannon, Nosedive uses contemporary theatre and circus to look at how cooperation, trust, security and vulnerability shift at varying stages of life, especially as we get older. Dubois recently won a Herald Angel Award for her sold-out Edinburgh Fringe piece No Show.

Presented by SUPERFAN PERFORMANCE (superfanperformance.co.uk) in co production with the Barbican and in association with Platform.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Nosedive are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
