The Art Of Conflict
Does humanity thrive on conflict? This new work is a montage of conflicts, disagreements and all-out war. It exposes humanity at its most vulnerable, beautiful, destructive and ugly. Incorporating the company’s unique urban style, a fusion of contemporary and hip-hop elements, the work features an original score combined with a striking lighting design and intense physicality. The Art of Conflict will lead you on a journey charged with tension and vulnerability.
★★★★ “They’re a force to be reckoned with. Part of a new generation with nothing to be sentimental about, What is Written doesn’t do twee, preferring to punch out physical statements.” – Peter Lindley, Morning Star
