THE BALLAD OF ISOSCELES
“Ballad of Isosceles is an eerie, unsettling and beautiful performance piece. While experimental in form, we are always sure that we’re in the safe hands of a highly accomplished performer and vocalist.”
-MATT FENTON, Artistic Director, Contact
The Ballad of Isosceles is a one-to-one performance for two people at a time exploring voyeurism, the Lynchian iconography of the chanteuse and the strange rhythms of vicarious pleasure. This piece was commissioned by Contact Theatre's Sensored Festival of Art and Performance for a residency culminating in a public festival at Contact Theatre's Oxford Rd. location in Manchester. It was then shown at Catalyst Arts's FIX15 Biennale of Performance in Belfast in December 2015.
