Carcass is a physical theatre performance devised and created between Trinity Laban third year students and Andreas Constantinou.
In Carcass an absurd and poetic reality is revealed through a journey of fascination and fixation with mortality and the body. Fragility and brutality combine into a strange universe where tenderness and terror peek. Flesh, bones, teeth and hair are investigated, discovered and interrogated through one group’s bizarre questioning. From the ritual to the regulated and culture to uncouthness, actions and reactions become a driving force towards an obtained power and knowledge.
Carcass originally began its creation with a research and development for seven young talents at Performers House in 2013. Since then Andreas has been further exploring the methodologies and concepts that underpin the work. In 2014 he was commissioned by Trinity Laban to continue his research and create a developed version of Carcass on a group of 19 young professionals.
Carcass premiered at The Bonnie Bird Theatre, Laban London as part of a mixed program. Audiences responded warmly as they embraced the work, with many remarking that they were moved and touched by the piece.
Constantinou now intends on further developing his research into the themes of Carcass and developing the piece into a full evenings work.
