Pairs: Passionate Machine / Eleutheromania
Lawrence Batley Theatre’s Victoria Firth attended the Artist as Entrepreneur (AAE) in the North. During these events, she had discussions with artists about how Lawrence Batley Theatre might programme smaller scale and new work, so this Curatorial Voice series of events is about exploring an answer to this. Other programmers will also be invited to these evenings in order to share developing dance pieces with them. Two of the pieces that she is presenting were shown at the showcase event during the AAE in Newcastle and one is an AAE artists work.
Winner of The Infallibles Award for Theatrical Excellence and Brighton Fringe’s Best New Play Award 2018, Passionate Machine is a playful, intelligent and searingly honest story about obsession, salvation, time travel and finding yourself – literally.
An exploration into the mental illness Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) through dance. The piece looks particularly at the inner monologue, rituals and actions of somebody who suffers with OCD, with specific reference to the different types of OCD such as contamination, invasive thoughts and checking.
