London-based Glass-Eye Theatre formed in November 2009. The company’s common training in the pedagogy of Jacques Lecoq at LISPA is complimented by the diversity of their global origins and their unique individual backgrounds. Hailing from nine different countries, the company’s technical training ranges from Butoh and clown through to Shakespeare.
Glass-eye work as an ensemble to create image-based, physical storytelling from scratch. They use clear and simple narratives and work to bring out their poetic dimensions – to encapsulate and make physical the feeling underneath a text or event.
With each new production the company seeks to challenge themselves: to fly without leaving the ground, to create a whole city using nothing but a length of rope. As an international company they appreciate language and the language of gesture in equal measure.
The company has now secured support from Arts Council England to tour The City And Iris this Spring. Click [here] for details of the performance here at Greenwich Theatre on 30 March, or [here] to find the full national tour list.
something new, something different, something you've never seen before... thank God for Glass-Eye Theatre...
