A delight of The Tringe is to experience shows that are beyond the conventional, which Alison Trower’s solo piece surely is.
Her beautiful and calmly delivered performance poetically explores that which separates and unites all humanity, as we evolved from clear blue seas and eventually walked on land that knows not of our existence.
We may believe we think inside or outside the bubble, yet perhaps we all are merely the film that shapes that sphere, a single molecule thick, and there is no ‘I’ in ‘we’. Therein lies the dichotomy of Trower’s piece as her ‘Template’ engages her audience in a sing-along and guessing the weight of horse shit – two way interactions.
Gentle and subtle wit punctuates the performance, relaxing one’s mind for a moment or two in a show which demands the viewer’s close attention.
Within your reach is a show which will stimulate conversation amongst its audience, for you will find yourself in the cup of life and love, so when will you go?
Alison Trower has come up to The Preston Tringe from London to share her thoughts and experiences with us, and her performances continue at The Arts & Media Centre, Fox Street 28 & 30 July at 8.30pm, and she returns to The Angel at 7.00pm on Friday 29 July.
