German contemporary dance company, Overhead Project, present the UK premiere of What Is Left? — a contemplation of spatial structures that shape human communication through a mesmeric physical theatre show at The Lowry on Mon 20 Mar.

Sitting somewhere between the border of contemporary circus and dance, the multi-award-winning company’s works reflect the stage situation as a place of communication and deal with social and political phenomena. Since 2017, Overhead Project has been producing shows as trilogies. What is left? is the last show of the Geometry and Politics trilogy.

What is Left? starts from the frontal classroom arrangement and deals with spatial structures that shape human communication culture. Familiar to us from theatres, the waiting situation at counters, the hierarchy in a courtroom, in school or in church, these spaces all demand and structure the gaze attention of bodies in space. This performance is dedicated to these subtle and not always perceptible architectural structures that create a field of tension between space and body, communication and power.

Audiences can expect a visual spectacle as the company push the boundaries of circus and dance, in a piece that is as impactful aesthetically as it is emotionally.
