A sound work without a score, a dance piece without steps, theatre without words.
Inspired by Charlotte Wood’s award-winning book The Natural Way of Things, the foul of the air is a genre bending performance set in multiple spaces of Newcastle’s The Lock Up with three double bass players, and two women who take you on a visceral journey of how easily we become immune to the mistreatment of others, especially women.
‘the foul of the air’ has been described by the author Charlotte Wood as
“a wild, hallucinatory, vivid and astonishing performance inspired by my novel The Natural Way of Things. I kept thinking Louise Bourgeois, Pina Bausch, dreams, One flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and everything being brought to the surface in Australia right now. Watching you with my heart in my mouth & guts churning was *exactly* what it felt like to write that book. Brava”.
