#PULSE18 – KNOT

Performed on Thu 31 May


Breath-taking acrobatics and humour explore our hopes for the ideal lover

A chance encounter between two acrobats: a frustrated lover and a jilted dreamer. This is the story of two hearts making sense of imperfection.

The Knot is the invisible string that connects two people. Sometimes strong, sometimes just about to break, it is the complex yet simple bond that we juggle with our whole lives.

Funny and heart breaking, Knot reveals the raw underbelly of Nikki & JD’s relationship with an effortless balance between spectacle and intimacy.

Knot was developed in collaboration with rising star Ben Duke of Lost Dog Dance and with support from the Jerwood Choreographic Research Project. It first premiered at The Place, London, as part of the 2016 Resolution festival and has benefitted from residencies and financial support from Déda, No Fit State, Jacksons Lane, Warwick Arts Centre and DanceEast.
