THE FORECAST

What happens when opposing fronts sweep across the shifting landscape of the gendered body? Can we intervene in newly forming identities, or must we surrender to their unpredictability?

Amy Bell dances and talks her way through this witty and dream-like solo performance, riding the blustery winds of aspiration and becoming, all the while hoping her umbrella doesn’t get turned inside out.

Immersed in a live digital soundscape by composer Jamie McCarthy, and dramaturgy and animation from visual artist Hetain Patel, Amy tackles the all too human longings and frustrations of transformation, trying to read the forecast, wondering how we will know when we’ve arrived.
