Backup, a gestural theatre piece by Chaliwaté Company and Focus
The scene is a snowy landscape festooned with miniature trees and houses with lights twinkling and smoke puffing from chimneys. Along comes a tiny campervan containing three filmmakers on their way to capture footage of an icy landscape in a part of the world which is disappearing – the Arctic. Disarming, witty and inventive physical comedy, Backup becomes a moving drama that compels us to face what we are doing to our planet.
