DV8 Physical Theatre - Dead dreams of monochrome men (7)

"Knock over", from Lloyd Newson's DEAD DREAMS OF MONOCHROME MEN (1989), created and performed by Lloyd Newson, Nigel Charnock, Russel Maliphant and Douglas Wright, directed by David Hinton.

"I was left with an endless search through the soul-destroying pub scene and its
resulting one-night stands ... passing faces and bodies, the unfulfilled tokens of an empty life.
A house is not a home and sex is not a relationship. We would only lend each other our bodies
in a vain search for inner peace." Dennis Nilson. DV8's latest work for four men, explores through non-narrative dance theatre the interwoven notions of loneliness, desire and trust. The men enact private rituals which become disturbing in their familiarity. When does the ordinary become extraordinary? Their actions push the boundary of naturalism to the extreme, the space becomes a landscape of loneliness where "nature makes no provision for emotional death" and men are left to resurrect their own lives.
