Pinch yourself: Aurélia Thierrée perfects the art of the steal on stage.
Bells and Spells follows Aurelia Thierrée’s peculiar journey as an incurable kleptomaniac who is at the mercy of the objects that she steals. A coat hanger starts to walk, chairs and a table slide and slip away, while a wall opens up to reveal a pair of dancers, and a dress suddenly takes on a life of its own.Using ethereal imagery and unpredictable props, this enchanting piece of physical theatre blends the wonderful with the strange. Neither logic, reason nor seriousness has a voice as Aurelia Thierrée and dancer Jaime Martinez guide you through a story which combines surreal humour and a sense of magic.
