Picture This Between the real and the imaginary

THE interface between the real and the imaginary when it comes to human relationships has long excited the imagination of writers and theatre makers and it’s something that’s explored in Point of Echoes from choreographer Ben Wright.

In this intimate piece of dance theatre presented by bgroup and China Plate, a drama unfolds between a lighthouse keeper, his assistant and a female character, who switches from being the lighthouse keeper’s wife to his assistant’s dead brother.

At times ephemeral, at others she’s a concrete figure haunting both men’s memories of their relationship with her.

This interplay between physical theatre and monologue, revealing the characters and their respective worlds, has a performance from Thomas Heyes notable for his powerful stage presence.

As the narrative unfolds, we observe a community being made and undone and are left reflecting on  what it is which makes human beings bond in making and remaking relationships.

Point of Echoes plays at Swindon Dance on March 15 and Small World, Cardigan, on March 17, details: chinaplatetheatre.com
