Deficit: Formation Festival

19:00, 29 Jun

Deficit, the debut work of new collective Deficit Theatre, is a new piece of devised theatre that exposes the magical realism of our everyday lives. We follow five vibrant characters, Selkie, Kelpie, Wulver, Beira and Poltergeist, as they explore the many facets of the human condition.

Through playful and intimate movement and dance, we watch them deconstruct their own metaphors. Incorporating original short film and groovy sound, join us as we push the boundaries of traditional physical theatre with profound self awareness and accessibility. Don’t worry, you’re allowed to laugh.
