On The Couch
Inspired by the strange world of relaxation tapes, On the Couch features a self-analysis session which revives memories of excessive affection and control within a family unit.
Commissioned by Southern Arts and co-produced by Centro Produzione della Danza/Inteatro, Italy. Supported by Bonnie Bird Choreography Fund, Greenwich Dance Agency, Jerwood Space, Robin Howard Foundation, The Space and Yorkshire Dance.
“I laughed out loud at the brilliant choreography, cheesy music and the tongue in cheek comedy rarely seen in dance.”
"Both humerous and dramatic .. (On The Couch)...is cleverly devised and a truly dynamic treat."
Conceived and directed by
Luca Silvestrini and Bettina Strickler
