Promotional video filmed by Rachael Hunter for new dance theatre work How to Survive the Future, created and performed by Tess Letham.
Blending bold imagery and dynamic movement, Tess Letham takes a journey through a collection of oddly humorous, tragic and alluring scenes derived from momentous life events. This is a powerful, captivating and harrowing account of how to react when everything is crumbling around you.
A distorted tale of human fragility and the anxious search for identity when faced with vast uncertainties in life. The desperate struggle to try to cling to some rationalisation through the loss of major relationships, the wavering complexity of love and grave concern for what the future holds.
With unique theatricality, diverse movement skills and an entrancing performance quality, the choreographer/ performer of this solo, Tess Letham, will lead you through an array of tangled pathways set to a distinctive soundtrack, seamlessly transforming herself through magnetic and vulnerable characters.
Funny, heart wrenching and beautifully tender, this dance and physical theatre performance will leave you charmed and quietly optimistic for how we try to keep going when life falls apart.
