RUNNING TIME: 30 MINUTES
PREMIERED: January 2007
Arc tells the story of three people who find themselves stranded together.
It is about the balance between them as relationships form and break apart. It explores the experience of isolation in close proximity.
It takes place on an aluminium aerial raft rigged 3.5 metres off the ground. Due to the way it is rigged the structure seems to float in the air, it also up-ends dramatically half way through the performance.
What the press say
"their catches and holds become perilously expressive, and their real vulnerability and strength becomes part of the story”
"nothing short of incredible"
"a very tender piece of visual storytelling"
“it is beautiful to watch, especially with the score by Derek Nisbet”
“It’s like the cliffhanger ending of The Italian Job, but re-scripted for extra existential impact by Beckett.”
The Daily Telegraph
“The moves are physically thrilling, the accompanying fluctuations of mood and relationships succinctly developed.”
