CAPTAIN KO AND THE PLANET OF RICE
A work-in-progress by Dancing Brick
New Wolsey Theatre, Thursday 26 May at 7.30pm
Captain Ko and the Planet of Rice is Dancing brick’s response to our anxiety towards ageing and our fear of forgetting. It is about recordings, memory and frontiers, told through a juxtaposition of a science-fiction and real life testimony. It is a study into neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Semantic Dementia, and how humans cope when faced with these strange realities told with Dancing Brick’s signature blend of poetic imagery, beautiful movement and comedy.
Dancing Brick is a company based in the South East of England that makes beautiful, bold visual theatre.

For this work-in-progress Valentina Ceschi and Thomas Eccleshare are collaborating with celebrated sound artist Caroline Devine and filmmaker Susanne Dietz (SHUNT).
