Idle Motion Present The Vanishing Horizion

Total Theatre Award-nominated Idle Motion return with their Sell-Out show The Vanishing Horizon which was selected for the British Council Showcase 2011.

This stunning piece of devised physical theatre uses charming and inventive staging created from battered suitcases, puppets, maps and paper airplanes to captivate its audience. In it they give wings to the female pioneers of aviation and the journeys they took, exploring the freedom they found in flight. Interwoven with this is the moving modern-day account of a young woman’s travels to discover the story of her estranged grandmother - who had fled the constraints of her life in post-war Britain to settle in South Africa. Idle Motion is a young and dynamic theatre company who is based in Oxford. It is a young company with big ideas, who are passionate about creating and sharing exciting and innovative new work. Amelia Earhart once said “the lure of flying is the lure of beauty” and that’s the charm of this piece – it is simply beautiful theatre - transporting you through crowded airports to the majesty of silent skies.
