A SHOW BY
VICTORIA THIERRÉE CHAPLIN
With Jaime Martinez
“Aurelia Thierrée perfects the art of the steal on stage” The Guardian
Bells and Spells follows Aurelia Thierrée’s peculiar journey as an incurable kleptomaniac who is at the mercy of the objects that she steals. A coat hanger starts to walk, chairs and a table slide and slip away, while a wall opens up to reveal a pair of dancers, and a dress suddenly takes on a life of its own.
Using ethereal imagery and unpredictable props, this enchanting piece of physical theatre blends the wonderful with the strange. Neither logic, reason nor seriousness has a voice as Aurelia Thierrée and dancer Jaime Martinez guide you through a story which combines surreal humour and a sense of magic.
Directed by Victoria Thierrée Chaplin, Bells and Spells returns to The Coronet Theatre for its London premiere after a work in progress sharing during the Coronet International Festival in 2017.
