“This show is emblazoned on my mind as one of the most memorable stage images I think I’ve ever seen”.
-Justin Butcher, actor and playwright
In January 2020, we debuted our first work as Petri Delights, Plate 01 as part of Resolution 2020 (The Festival of New Choreography) at The Place in Euston. As a company, we generate designs for costumes and sculptures which inform the choreography and narrative.
Under the microscope: zoom in on the uncanny realm of a petri plate, observe how human-sized bacteria can be both unnerving and humorous. Plate 01 is a multi-disciplinary performance featuring an original score of sonic narratives created using natural materials by collaborator Adam Paroussos. Expect body extension, bacteria and the bizarre.
