Mr Brin d’Avoine has an eclectic collection of treasured objects. His home is a refuge, a complete imaginary and ornately intricate world. Two man-servants welcome you into his house. On entering you will leave your usual place as a mere spectator and become a privileged visitor in an intriguing and dreamlike house.

All of us are filled with the memories and early experiences of our first home, our earliest playground and a place of daydreams which never leaves us. Home is the place that influences the building of our spatial and emotional selves. Within a specially created performance space containing delicate and immersive installations, evocative film, redolent music and poetic soundscapes, travel with our humorous and charming guides to the emotional heart of the meaning and significance of home in all our lives.

One of France’s greatest and most influential visual and object theatre companies. Vélo Thèâtre has been creating intimate, beautiful and poetic worlds for its audiences since 1981. Its work has been seen and acclaimed all over the world. This is the company’s third visit to manipulate, having previously presented Appel D’Air and And Then He Ate Me which great success.

Dal Vivo!

Using simple, everyday objects and light Flop creates before our eyes an enigmatic and thought-provoking world. A succession of potent and beautiful images invite us to reflect upon those primal connections and relationships – to home, to loved-ones, and the world around us – which make us who we are.

dal vivo-7207

An immersive, allusive and poetic piece, living on the cusp of performance art, cinema, theatre, and painting, Dal Vivo! shows us the mechanics of creativity where between light, objects, projection and their interplay we can create our own, personal narratives. Light takes on a multi-coloured, textured, almost corporeal quality, enabling us to re-examine the mysteries of our inner and outer worlds and how we reconcile our dreams with our realities.

In parallel with his career as creator, performer and director with the acclaimed performance art ensemble Group Zur, Flop has been making and presenting solo work throughout Europe since 2004, exploring light and its use as an expressive theatrical medium in its own right.
