TONGUETied Theatre’s current tour of The Fantasist’s Waltz arrives in Harrogate on April 18 when it will be performed in the Harrogate Theatre Studio.
Set in a world of misguided passions, momentary lifetimes and crumbs of desire, The Fantasist’s Waltz is a haunting modern fairy tale of an isolated man who disappears into his imagination for solace.
York-based company, TongueTied’s work was last seen at Harrogate Theatre when they worked with the Harrogate Youth Theatre to create the interactive sci-fi adventure Area HG1 during the summer of 2011.
Their latest show is a thought-provoking and beautiful play, pulses with a live original score and inventive physical storytelling.
Baffled by a world in which he feels an outsider, the Fantasist has created an incredible imaginary world filled with wild balls, bouncing orchestras and saturated colour.
Here he spends his nights, each and every night, dancing his worries away.
His reliance upon these dreamland escapades become too great, and as his control begins to crumble his entire world crashes down upon him. Lost and alone, he is left searching for new meaning in life. The answer, though, might just be closer than even he could imagine.
TongueTied Theatre are renowned for creating deeply imaginative and spontaneous theatre that is larger than life but accessible to all.
The company is driven by co-artistic directors Lizzie Wiggs and Kyle Davies who met whilst training in Paris at the internationally renowned physical theatre school L’Ecole Jacques Lecoq.
The company’s work has been seen in the United States, France, China as well as here in the UK.
l The Fantasist’s Waltz runs at Harrogate Theatre from April 18-19.
