Alfred ve dvoře resident Fleur Alexander reviews a selection of the theatre's nonverbal productions
It's a concept we deal with daily, yet rarely consider, and it gives this piece a familiarity that comes as a surprise.
And pleasantly surprising at that, like a wash of contemplation that was always there: A quiet, yet unreserved poignancy.
It's not about the journeys that trains make, it's not even really about trains, but the fixed impact the rail network has on culture and the people who maintain it.
The network has such an ingrained presence in every society, it's one of our foundations in the modern world, and it has a sensation and charm that crosses every language barrier.
A series of metal girders and wooden sleepers that fly off into the distance allow us to become connected to each other no matter where or who we are.
Train tracks will always eventually lead you to people. They represent our connection with humanity. We all share it, yet spend little time contemplating it.
Trains creates a meticulous ambience that retains its audience in thoughtful suspense. It encourages you to consider detail, to appreciate, utilize and notice the small things.
It upholds a stillness that anchors the atmosphere, allowing the performers to provide multifaceted insight into their own intricate observations.
