Following successful national tours of That’s Amore and Happy Hour, Liverpool’s award-winning physical theatre company, Tmesis Theatre premieres new show, Beyond Belief.
Beyond Belief will open at the Unity Theatre on Friday 28 September, continuing through to Saturday 6 October, with tour dates at the Vanbrugh Theatre – Chester on October 16th and The Arts Centre EHU Ormskirk on October 18th. It will tour nationally in spring 2019.
Beyond Belief asks the questions, what would happen if you could live forever? If you could bring your loved one back to life and resurrect their digital soul?
It is a powerful and moving journey into the unnerving future of life and death in our social media obsessed, technology blinkered society. With their trademark playful physical style, Tmesis explore how we cope with loss in the digital age and how we won’t ever let Elvis die.
The production will merge text, physicality, powerful design and original music to create a stunning, engaging, playful and emotive performance that will make us question the future of the world we are living in.
Tmesis one of the UK’s leading physical theatre companies who create, share and develop extraordinary physical theatre through touring, participation and an International festival, Physical Fest. They make playful and passionate theatre that explores what it is to be human, they make work that is bold, exciting and creates a lasting impression.
The company has performed across the UK and internationally in Ireland, Zambia, Croatia, France, Italy, Germany, Greece and New York, winning the award for ‘Best Choreography’ for Wolf Red in 2016.
