A World Without Words (Peters Productions in association with The Old Red Lion Theatre)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

Sometimes the simplest concepts can blow you away. The familiar story of boy-meets-girl is taken to another world through the choreography of Frances Teehan and this entirely dance-driven production. From tentative first meet to dramatic conclusion, a nine-strong cast dance a love story through beautifully constructed scenes that do not miss a beat. A traditional narrative is given first-rate treatment, pulling the audience in with an effortless display of skill. It is the sheer passion and wonderful ability, particularly from the two leads, Emma Cave and Richie Wong, to communicate so much through body language and facial expression. No movement is wasted; every step is there for a reason. A simply beautiful piece of real physical theatre.
