Company: Two Destination Language

A fashion show on the fracture between feminism and fabric. A catwalk which takes you from Haute Couture to bargain bin, from big beats to near silence. Five diverse performers take to the stage on a catwalk like no other! Garments flow, stilettos break, hair is pulled up, let loose, let free! Jazzy moves, heartfelt stories and heart-throbbing energy fills the room.

Navigate your own path through a performance featuring five strong women from different walks of life. Using your mobile and headphones, choose between music and stories which offer contrasting positions on the parade of costumes and identities on stage. Curate your own journey through a runway show of people like you and people you’ll never know, with a soundtrack selected by you. Susan Sontag meets America’s Next Top Model.

Two Destination Language makes intercultural dialogues in theatrical forms. Led by artists Alister Lownie and Katherina Radeva, the company creates award winning devised contemporary theatre and large community projects which tour around the UK and internationally. Visually stunning, their work deals with identity, cultural boundaries and belonging. Alister’s Scottish heritage and Katherina’s Bulgarian background led to this interest in how cultures interact, develop and are defined. Often working from biographical starting points, they create emotionally and intellectually stimulating experiences relevant to contemporary society. Theatre changes people. It makes us think, talk, reconsider. The company’s work has liveliness at its core, and includes installations, intimate performances, community engagement projects as well as stage performances.
