At the heart of things

A dance-puppetry performance inspired by Oscar Wilde’s De Profundis.

Contact improvisation, visual imagery, garbage film and devised text, creates a contemporary adaptation that dives into female sexuality, queer identity and homophobia.  

In a dystopian world where growing fear takes front stage, two young women Lilly and Nina are dancing in a nightclub. When a gunman enters and opens fire, nothing will be the same again.

Lilly is trying to make sense in a senseless world. What does it mean to be a woman? What does it mean to fall in love? Out of her frustration, Oscar Wilde will be born, to  guide her, page by page, towards rediscovering her sexuality and womanhood.

''An intriguing show to watch, full of little flashes of beauty and excellence.''  Views from the gods
