by Peter McMaster
AN ECSTATIC RITUAL OF LIFE AND DEATH
Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Brian Jones all died aged 27.
As Peter McMaster reaches 27 he contemplates this age of change, using autobiography and ritual to explore this tipping point between life and death.
Two performers push themselves towards bodily extremes, towards danger and potential ends. Embracing moments of physical excess, 27 turns the threat of untimely death into a vibrant celebration of being.
Praise for Peter McMaster
“Honest, inventive and beautifully choreographed” – The Guardian
