Lazarus, resurrected by the hand of Jesus, has wondered the world for millennia. Unable to die, he returns to his ancient tomb to finally rest. In his lonesome madness he is able only to tirelessly thrash against the walls of his immortal body, uttering half-remembered words of Christ. With soft song a disturbed flower girl tends to the garden that has sprouted in the death rich earth. A man festering with sickness arrives seeking Lazarus, desperately hoping to evade his fate…
Between Teeth Theatre seek to make uncompromising new work, bringing big ideas into visceral confrontation with our daily lives.
We work from images that move us, physically and emotionally. They are the wheels that set our process in motion, and the sign posts that guide us in our journey towards a theatre which can translate complex subject matter into affective experiences. A continued development from previous versions of Perpetual, Between Teeth have teamed up with sound artist James Shearman, to integrate the use of sound within performance, in particular the "physicality of sound" and how this leads to animated movement.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Between Teeth Theatre Company was founded in 2014 by Jimmy Addy, Taylor Ayling and Liam Cadzow Webb, soon-to-be graduates of Rose Bruford College's European Theatre Arts course. Conceived in 2014, PERPETUAL has been developed for over 3 years and is Between Teeth Theatre's groundbreaking first show.
