Gravity (and other attractions)

Lolo and Tiki meet on a subway train. They travel through their imagination as they experience different ways of attraction…

ImPArt enables us to re-think the stage, and to experiment with new thoughts and approaches.

Gravity (and other attractions) is a contemporary dance theatre duet performed by a deaf (Tiki) and a hearing (Lolo) dancer. They will always be there, even if at times you don’t see or hear them.

A poetic English audio description, which is artistically integrated into the performance, builds the creative base of this piece. The descriptive language is the inspiration, the verbal translation and the spoken text of the performance.

Access

The performance has been developed by a creative team consisting of members with and without disabilities. Accessibility has been an integral part of the creative process. Gravity (and other attractions) uses innovative methods of accessibility as a core of the performance. The work is mainly accessible through poetic audio description. This innovative approach integrates descriptive language into the play without specifically targeting a visually impaired audience. Gravity also features other languages and art forms, such as international sign language and visual vernacular. Touch tours are available.
