In her solo show actress and aerialist Matilda Leyser climbs alone into the air to explore the solitude which, paradoxically, we all share. 'Line, Point, Plane' combines physical theatre with circus aerial skills, dance, original writing, music and design. Building on both existing material and new work the project brings together an exciting and highly-respected team of collaborators from the world of theatre and dance.
Comprising three parts, the performance's structure and title have been inspired by the artist Wassily Kandinsky's seminal work 'Point and Line to Plane'. Matilda's performance powerfully demonstrates how aerial work can dramatise many of the metaphors through which we describe our life on the ground.
'Line, Point, Plane' was commissioned by ROH2 at The Royal Opera House with support from the Helen Hamlyn Trust, The London International Mime Festival and Pegasus Theatre Oxford and is supported by South Hill Park with funding from Arts Council England.
