The Nature of Why @ The Lowry, Salford

  • The Lowry Pier 8, The Quays Salford M50 3AZ (map)

Playfully fusing contemporary dance with a cinematic live-score by Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, The Nature of Why smashes the divide between musicians, dancers and the audience, in a performance bursting with passion and joyous intensity.
Taking inspiration from the unconventional curiosity of theoretical physicist Richard Feynman, The Nature of Why explores his search for meaning in the world around us. The stage itself becomes a site of discovery as constantly shifting action invites audiences to seek out their own unique encounters; resulting in an epic and immersive theatrical experience like no other.
This isn’t a performance you simply see or hear. It’s one you feel”. (Bristol 24/7)
