Vestige... compelling and accomplished ****
— The Guardian

Coming to Trestle in the Autumn a unique, up close and personal experience of Wayne Parsons Dance. Without all the technical trappings of larger scale performances, Wayne Parsons Dance will present a compelling double bill of dance-theatre where movement and text are seamlessly combined in what is a truly distinctive approach to storytelling.

Vestige is based on the life of a fictional celebrity named Livia. Her memory is kept alive in the stories of those who knew her. Fan-girl archivist Suki, needy portrait artist Cath and jealous biographer and ex-husband Killian all share their differing accounts of Livia as she weaves her way through their memories. Bridging the worlds of dance and theatre, Vestige is the company's first collaboration with writer Ankur Bahl.

The touching, sensitive and playful duet, Meeting sees a couple navigate the retelling of a shared memory. Launching Wayne Parsons Dance, Meeting premiered at The Place in Resolution! 2013. Since then, it has been a finalist at the Copenhagen International Choreography Competition and been seen at Big Dance.
