“So!” she said, without being startled or surprised; “the days have worn away, have they?” – Miss Havisham, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

Fun in Limbo is inspired by the character Miss Havisham, from Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations.  An array of characters is suspended in time, in a room, in limbo.  Each person has been heartbroken and remains stuck in their heartbreak.  They clash, laugh, mourn, tease, flirt, brawl, heal and try to find a way out.  Part Dickens, part One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and part European dance theatre, “Fun in Limbo” creates a strange, beautiful world.

Look + Feel:  raw, surreal and relatable. ranging from wild movement to subtle theatrical moments.
