Tara D’Arquian: Quests

This is the second in a trilogy of works by the Belgian choreographer Tara D’Arquian and, like In Situ, is a fabulous mix of dance, film, drama, words and music exploring the twilight world between reality and magic, creativity and despair. The audience at for the world premiere at Greenwich’s Borough Hall was led through the auditoria, corridors and back-rooms of the art deco building in a magnificent production that at times became a show within a show within a show. Great performances by D’Arquian, Anne-Gaelle Thiriot, Typhaine Delaup, Bruno Humberto, Ottillie Parfitt, Marc Stevenson, Philippe Lenzini and the chorus. But the real scene-stealers for me were the deliciously unsettling trio of faceless demi-goddesses who may have been Fates or Furies, Graces or Gorgons – or possibly all four. I can’t wait for the final instalment of this trilogy.
