DIARY #2 | Choreography
w. SARAH APRIL LAMB | 15 NOV, 2018
TREEFXXXERS was always going to be an immediate success simply due to its foundations of TREES and FXXXING – key elements of the physical world that translate epically into theatre and dance. Whilst I knew nothing about the situation in Sheffield I did know that all a good tree fxxxing show needs to break boundaries is a couple of highly technical routines, ideally including some acrobatic folk and aggressive jazz. My training in none of the above has ensured a tangible rawness to the movement work in the show; we’re aiming for an essence of hardness and bittersweet flavour, like biting a baby tree. You’ll taste it when you come to see it. Red tape got in the way and held us back from the exquisite recreations of death by chainsaw that I had in mind so instead we’re playing with logs a lot. What a laugh.
