Aporia
“Can we ever truly find peace?”

After the success of Normative? last year as part of the Offbeat Festival, Oxford-born choreographer Thomas Page is returning to the Old Fire Station with their latest contemporary dance work Aporia.

“We are simultaneously living as we are dying”

Charged by a unique electronic score from composer Max Winter, five performers challenge the themes of life’s perpetual aporia within human nature. This highly physical work brings together expressive movements with compelling reflections of spoken-word, under a chic geometric lighting design by Joel Levine, to explore the paradoxical relationship of peace and conflict.

“I feel all of it and nothing.”
★★★★ “Aporia was loud but hugely satisfying” – The Sunday Express

“A restless piece, that refused to let the audience settle” – The Place Reviews

The Oxford Times
