In ANDANTE, the theatre is filled with smoke and scent; you are taken on a journey into a haze of uncertainty, time and love.
  • Venue: The Aldridge Studio
  • Ages: 14+

Developed With The Lowry

The French mystic and philosopher Simone Weil wrote that “attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity”. Andante is an invitation to pause, to connect with your senses, to be in a room with others and not have to say or even see anything. It is conceived as a generous and patient walk into a cloud of attention and time. 

The word andante refers to a type of musical movement that is moderately slow or distinct. It originates from the Italian word andare which means “to go”.

Igor and Moreno make hypnotic and visceral works exploring people’s needs and desires. Andante follows on from international tours of acclaimed works Idiot-Syncrasy and A Room For All Our Tomorrows

On Idiot-Syncrasy “Unmissable!” Everything Theatre ★★★★★ 
Nominated for Total Theatre Awards for Dance and National Dance Awards - Outstanding Male Performance 
On A Room For All Our Tomorrows “Unpretentious, minimal yet lush and therefore all the more extreme” Seeing Dance
