RENAUD WISER DANCE COMPANY
Who Killed Bambi? is a collaborative work between dance, theatre, music and stage design, bringing together an exciting team of artists including theater director and international associate at The Royal Court Theater Richard Twyman and composer, cellist and artist in residence at the South Bank Center Oliver Coates. It takes inspiration from recent political examples of individuals standing against the group and portrays the subsequent hunt to silence them as a large-scale fur installation transforms the stage into a fierce hunting ground.
