Emma and PJ are having trouble walking across a room. Perhaps they are lost, or confused, or scared to move forward. Or maybe it’s because they’re in the middle of the ocean.
ATLANTIC is a clown romance about division and drift. Created across Portsmouth and San Francisco, it’s a vintage aquarium fantasia about the tensions between humans and nations. Two people crash into each other, again and again. They push and they pull. The ground echoes with the shifting of tectonic plates. It begins to rain.
This is the debut show of international performance duo emma + pj. It is a love story made out of fragments from two homes by the sea. You might get wet.Book Now
emma + pj is the collaboration between American theatre maker Emma Clark & British maker PJ Stanley. Their practice centres on interdisciplinary exchange, exploring new performance frontiers with an internationalist outlook. They create spontaneous, ephemeral moments of liveness and community in spaces that are playful, compassionate & brimming with possibility. Their work experiments with form & aesthetic to explore the radicalism of the everyday, dancing at the edges of the personal & the political.Book Now
