This production is one of two different performances at the Brighton Fringe this year by the same Brazilian company, ParaladosnajoS, this year’s winner of the The Pebble Trust International Touring Bursary.
The other production being The Twins, a funny, family-friendly show featuring clowning, aerial circus, physical theatre, quick-change and eccentric dance.
Wet & Dry is an almost word-free physical and visual performance; a poignant, poetic and sometimes comically absurd reflection on human fragility in the face of nature, inspired by the real and re-imagined stories of people who have suffered the onslaught of natural disasters. Four distinct scenes, directed by four different directors of international renown, explore the human capacity to overcome obstacles and survive extreme situations.
Bold, vibrant physical theatre from Brazil.
