New challenge for Goat Island

The co-founders of the hugely influential Chicago-based performance company, Goat Island, right, bring their new piece Testimonium to the Nuffield Theatre on Lancaster University campus next Wednesday and Thursday.


Testimonium responds to US poet Charles Reznikoff’s unfinished Testimony, a collection of courtroom testimonies translated into poetry.

The performance alternates between Stephen Fiehn’s inventive movement sequences, Bryan Saner’s recitation of the text, and songs performed live by Chicago band Joan of Arc, an extremely loud post-rock band with hints of Sonic Youth – earplugs are provided!

Meanwhile, Vox Motus, National Theatre of Scotland, and Tianjin People’s Art Theatre of China unleash Dragon at The Lowry in Salford tomorrow and Saturday.

It’s the first co-production between the three companies. Chinese physical artists bring an international dimension to this groundbreaking production.

Puppetry, illusion and original music combine to create a theatrical event for the whole family.
