Inspired by a picture of skeletons moshing at a death metal concert, a line of text from Samuel Beckett, and the Hall and Oates song “You make my dreams come true”, Close at Hand is filled with games, songs, and improvised monologues, all rooted in the question, “what was your first experience of death?”
Nervous System System is Vancouver’s Caroline Liffmann, Tanya Podlozniuk and Billy Marchenski. Since 2008 they have been collaborating on quick and dirty art-making, video shorts, photo shoots, and small bits of absurd theatre. Nervous System System continues to be inspired by clown, contemporary dance, and collaboration.
Close at Hand was first created for Here Be Monsters’ Theatre under the Gun, and is generously supported by the British Columbia Arts Council and the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival.
