They Live Next Door

Tuesday 26 September 2017

Set in a home, on a street not too far from your own, They Live Next Door explores the light and the dark of a relationship between two men. Against a background of domestic rituals, the multiple relationships between them unfold, weaving memories, struggles and dreams.

They Live Next Door is a touching, tender and gritty show, intertwining theatre with intricate choreography and nostalgic melodies as it explores preconceptions around masculinity and communication.

Ieva (pronounced: Yeah-va) Kuniskis is a Lithuanian choreographer based in London. She combines dance and theatre to share stories about everyday life, creating an unique movement language and distinct authentic characters. Ieva interweaves universally relevant themes with affecting, personal stories, inviting audiences to relate to them and follow their own emotional journey in parallel to that of the characters.

They Live Next Door is now sold out. If you would like to see it, please contact us on 02077010100 to be put on the waiting list.
