‘THE ROSE GARDEN’
In this new work Weeks & Whitford explore despair and hope, addiction, anger, illness, faith and recovery using the framework of ritual to offer a way forward, to heal and liberate themselves and each other.
Weeks & Whitford make complex psychologically, emotionally and physically intense and often participatory durational performances involving evolving installations, specific soundscapes, choreographies of inter related actions and improvisations in response to context, site and audience. Liveness is central to their work. The use of sound scores, materials, props and actions enables them to construct personal and shared processes of transition or transformation. They address specific issues and personal challenges and communicate their experience of it to others. These issues, concerns and experiences become aestheticised as part of a highly personal, revelatory ongoing narrative.
