miles & miles is a performance positioned at the edge of a landscape. It asks the questions: How do we continue once we've lost our position? How do we accommodate ourselves on shaky ground and prepare for the uncertainty still to come? How do we become intimate with the inevitable fall?
Looking to a world of arctic blankness, flying leaps and shear cliff face climbs the performers stumble through the artifice that distracts them from the fear of what is still to come.
Christopher and Grodin, tied to opposite ends of a 100 metre rope, hop, skip, cajole and reminisce about other people's lives. They are suspended above the ground. They are heading for the horizon. We know they will never get there. Still, they need a destination.
"miles & miles is falling; it is groundless. It is also friendship, and working something from the unknown, and gently excavating the collective and individual memories that make up a theatrical encounter." Diana Damian - Exeunt
