Following her highly successful debut, Triptych, Alice Allart is back with another wordless physical theatre gem: These Books Are Made For Walking.
“We plunge ourselves deep into the pile – the weight and words of books – to create a Borgesian world of balletic babel. We address what might be contained within them as they dress us : books become ruff, headdress and slipper in this playful physical encounter. Books are read, trod upon, turned and tuned. Books support us, shelter us and carry us from one place to another”
These Books Are Made for Walking is a wordless journey, two performers balance between the lines in this barmy bibliophilic skills based show that is ludic, lyrical and literary.
These Books Are Made for Walking has been developed to tour in theatres and in libraries (there are 2 different technical riders, ask us for more details).
It is suitable for all age groups.
The company plan to work with a team of ASD specialists to offer relaxed performances for children and young people on the autistic spectrum.
