Manipulate: A Wire Apart

About Manipulate: A Wire Apart

Does the ability to communicate anytime, anyplace, really help us to connect? How much stress and tension do you feel at times because you're expected to be constantly "connected"?

Does instant connectivity help our attempts to make meaningful relationships with our surroundings and our fellow humans? Or does it reinforce feelings of isolation and inadequacy as we reflect upon and react to connections made and lost?

A dynamic exploration of the ways in which modern methods of communications affect us all, using dance, physicality, aerial acrobatics, tight-wire walking and original music.

Since its formation in 2006 Paper Doll Militia's innovative and exuberant approach to choreography and theatricality has captivated audiences around the world. The company has previously appeared at manipulate to great acclaim with EGG, UNCHAINED and UNHINGED.
