The English Channel is the story of a career forged in the heady waters of performance art and dance-film. It vividly depicts Liz Aggiss resuscitating herself back into the on-stage limelight. In the process, she becomes an unwitting channel for wilful women and forgotten archives; a conduit for hidden histories and buried truths. She is your cunning connection to ‘the other side’; a witty commentator on life and death; on the pain, pleasure and paradox of the stage.
Using her body as the medium through which to act out and act up, the choreography and texts (written by Aggiss) are framed by contemporary and archive film (Joe Murray). The specially composed music score (by Alan Boorman/Wevie) includes some knock-out musical numbers. Surprise guests are channelled into being. On a stage of chaos anything can happen, nobody can leave, everyone is present. Knock twice for yes. For ages 15+
