Description

George receives a life-changing opportunity to meet the mysterious J. He leaves his old life behind and sets on a course to find himself. This pitch-black physical theatre is an insight into the madness of modern living. We are more comfortable yet more insecure than we've ever been. We blare flatscreen TVs in freezing houses that we can't afford. We scuffle for unpaid opportunities like we're in competition with the world. As George leaves his home and makes his way through the city, Contingency's stunning choreography and sharp-tongued satire creates a world of dangerous ambition.
