Part of FLARE15, the International Festival of New Theatre:
Rachael Clerke (UK) presents Cuncrete and Antoine Fraval (FR) presents When you talk about ‘The Swimmer’ will you talk about yourself?
Cuncrete is the stage version of the TV show that might have happened if Chris Morris ever collaborated with Jonathan Ross to make a punk drag show about concrete architecture.
Rachael Clerke is a Bristol-based maker of performances, websites, writings, drawings and films. She wants to make people swear, in a good way.
When you talk about ‘The Swimmer’ will you talk about yourself?
Made in collaboration with Augusto Corrieri
This new choreographic project takes its cue from the iconic 1968 film ‘The Swimmer’, in which Burt Lancaster swims through a series of outdoor pools in an attempt to return home. The performance is part movie re-enactment and part reflection on its motifs of ageing, ambition and the struggle to hold on to what is dear.
Antoine Fraval is an artist and performer, co-founder of Deer Park and collaborator on the Lone Twin Theatre projects. Augusto Corrieri is a London-based artist and writer.
