Vex Dance Theatre

Vex is a Bristol based education and performance company formed in 2007. We offer workshops and performance projects in education and community settings alongside creating and touring performance work.

Vex explores the point where dance meets theatre, playing with the tension between body and text.

Through highly physical and energised choreography we endeavour to make creative, engaging and unpretentious work.

Our current performance piece Bluebird is Based on interviews with immigrants and refugees living in Bristol, Bluebirdtakes a highly physical look at individuals expectations and experiences of life in Britain. An intense and honest response to the hours of stories collected depicting the remaking of ‘home’ in a society that is struggling to define its own identity.

Opening at the Tobacco Factory Brewery Theatre Wednesday 7th- Saturday 10th July 2010.
