Event Details

An Ice Thing to Say blends ice installation, music and physical theatre to explore our impact on nature. Drawing on inspiration from Erich Fromm’s book To Have or to Be? and Ecoscenography, we invite the audience into a multi-sensory experience of our inner and outer icy landscapes. We attempt to challenge the idea that the human being is at the centre of the world and we attempt to construct an embodied inquire into ‘what has gone wrong?’ This performance was a sell-out at Vault Festival 2023 and has been on a European tour.

Vertebra Theatre Company

Taking Movement and the Poetic Body as a starting point, as an ensemble of actors - creators, musicians, puppeteers, choreographers and visual artists we create a constant dialogue between our artistic forms and practises and strive to go beyond their boundaries blending Physical Theatre, Dance, Puppetry and the Visual Arts to tell stories that are relevant to a rapidly changing physical and social environment. We research and express the artistic vision of life within us and outside of us.
