THE POINT AT WHICH IT LAST MADE SENSE

A COLLABORATION WITH NICK BRYSON

LIVE PERFORMANCE, A BOOK, FILMS AND MORE

 

This multi iteration work hinges on extremes of advertising, intertwined with an exploration of beauty, from the profound to the superficial. The mechanism of evolution articulated as marketing tools, simultaneously mystical and baldly selfish.

"...the imperfect bodies are soon revealed to have their own strange, unorthodox and remarkable beauty. ...What a joy it is to experience – in oneself – the demolition of the banal stereotypes foisted on us by advertising and reinforced daily by mainstream platitudes.". - londondance.com

"The Point At Which It Last Made Sense deals with the issues around the personal and cultural charisma of beauty, its poignancy, even its mortality, most beautifully." - londontheatre1.com
