PAST PRODUCTIONS

THAT'S AMORE (2014)

That’s Amore has successfully played 24 performances nationally and is available for booking for national and international festivals.

 

That’s Amore is a pacy, passionate, hilarious and poignant show that examines the world and culture of romantic love: from chance encounters to hidden desires and emotional extremes to the science of romance; the piece explores the flesh and philosophy behind what makes our hearts beat faster, exploring the thrills and dangers of surrendering ourselves to romance.

 

That’s Amore is Tmesis’ most ambitious production yet – an ensemble of four prodigiously talented performers led by original Artistic Director Elinor Randle.  It combines Tmesis’ trademark physicality with insight from long term collaborator and award winning writer Chris Fittock, stunning visuals and an eclectic soundtrack.

VARIATIONS OF THE HEART (2013)

What happens to our brain, body and heart when we ‘fall in love’?

 

Variations of the Heart is a twenty minute, passionate duet between two women, a story of the human heart, it’s power, and it’s many variations.
