The question ‘What Do You See In Me?’ was at the heart of the research and development for our groundbreaking circus show – What Am I Worth? (link). We revisit this initial question in our new short film, premiering on Sep 30 2020.
In the prologue to ‘What Am I Worth?’ we return to the characters from the show.
Filmed in artists’ homes during lockdown, March-April 2020, the piece is written by award-winning playwright, Hattie Naylor (Weighting 2015 Tour), and features an original score by Ted Barnes.
“What do you see in me?” is a question that we are constantly asking those around us. What is your instant impression? What do you see? Will you take the time to truly understand who I am? It is a question that many in society are asking at the moment.” Billy Alwen, Co-Artistic Director, Extraordinary Bodies
What Do You See In Me? is a story told through physicality, dance and music. We meet Kelly Boy and the community he lives in. People together as one, but each alone as they ask: What Do You See In Me?
