Director & Choreographer
The Shape of a Day is a contemporary dance duet, directed by Beatriz C. Bidault, created and performed in collaboration with Theo Arran.
A child might see a broken glass and say 'the glass is dead' as the purpose of the glass has disappeared. How does loosing the physical and cognitive abilities, that we depend upon to relate with our environment, affect our sense of identity?
The duet explores how a couple takes care of one another, what losing the ability to relate with our surroundings means, and how animism relates to the concepts of purpose, identity and being alive.
