2 performers, a mini trampoline and a 1000 piece puzzle.
Leah and Sophie have been together, here, for a long time. They are happy here.
But there's a problem. There's a massive f**king problem and soon they're going to have to talk about it.
The award-winning Antler transfer Lands to NDT following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017, with a playful, intimate dissection of a relationship teetering on the edge of collapse.
Exploring our inability to understand one another, and the lands we isolate ourselves on, this is an absurd tragi-comedy for our times.
This performance was developed at Battersea Arts Centre and is supported by The Bush Theatre and the New Diorama Theatre Emerging Companies Fund.
Antler are an associate company at The Bush. Winner of the IdeasTap Underbelly Award, winner of Pulse Festival Suitcase Prize, nominated for The Stage Best Ensemble Award, and winner of Best Short Fiction at BFI Future Film Festival, Antler have transferred shows to The Bush, Soho Theatre and toured the UK.
They were part of the New Diorama Emerging Companies Programme in 2014 with their acclaimed show Where The White Stops.
QUOTES FOR ANTLER
"Lands asks whether we can ever really understand each other or relate to other people's tragedies. Smart stuff." Lyn Gardner, The Guardian Recommended Shows 2017
"A late and very welcome addition to the programme is LANDS by Antler Theatre, a sparse, desolate evocation of loneliness." Exeunt recommended shows 2017, The Word of Mouth Favourites
"Incisive, tender, tough and heartbreaking. Definitely enormously recommended." Andrew Haydon, Postcards from the Gods
"Unlike anything I've seen at the fringe before." Hannah Greenstreet, Exeunt
★★★★ "Lands is an instantly engrossing exploration of obsession, of relationships and communication, of drive and determination, and fear of failure. Expect to be taken on a surprising rollercoaster of emotions, from belly-laughs to anguish." To Do List London
★★★★ "The simplicity is genius. Sheer brilliance of the writing, directing and acting" Broadway Baby
★★★★ "For many years Antler have been one of the most interesting companies producing work at the Edinburgh Fringe. Their unique style has won them critical praise and is wonderfully exemplified in Lands, which may just be their most engaging work to date." Reviews Hub
