What are you looking for?

A Thread is a subtle line of enquiry. A starting point. A question and an answer. Playing on its multiplicity of meanings, we invite you to unravel the mystery. Artistic Director and Choreographer Jean Abreu embarks on another ambitious collaboration with sculptor and visual artist Elisa Bracher, exploring the concept of balance, physical and metaphorical.

Capturing the essence of Elisa’s majestic gravity defying sculptures through a choreographic language, Jean assembles a team of outstanding dancers who interact and manipulate mysterious metallic structures, transforming the space around them in a gripping exploration between dance and visual arts, a giant puzzle weaving in and out of the space.

Jean Abreu Dance is delighted to return again to Colchester with this exclusive preview of our newest production. A Thread is an internationally made piece involving partners and collaborators from the UK, China and Brazil and it celebrates the company’s continued artistic association with Lakeside Theatre.
