"A scaffold supporting different surfaces on which we can project our desires, a series of open possibilities where the rules are made up in the exchanges between two performers, and the audience." - Zoi Dimitriou.

 

Inspired by Chris Marker's photographic science fiction film 'La Jetée', You May! is a dance theatre work that asks what it is to live in contemporary society, where the old paradigm of "you can, because you must" has been inverted to "you must, because you can". Using sound, set and lighting, this interdisciplinary piece offers the spectators propositions in the settings of imagination, desire and risk. Involving interactive stage elements for the performers to engage with and challenge each other within the realms of the environment that they have been implemented in.
