Familiar is a twinset of performances on significant otherness. One authored by Kleiman and performed by Wohead, the other authored by Wohead and performed by Kleiman, the two are twisted together with the help of story, song and spit.

Springboarding from a question of companionship, Kleiman and Wohead reach for something altogether more mysterious: a shaggy dog story danced by Twin Peaks’ legendary Log Lady, speaking from the beyond to enable the pair to become others of significance then and there in the theatre.

Set amongst an original design by celebrated artist Tim Spooner, the works in Familiar play out what it means to be companions, where we think we know everything about each other whilst facing the fact that we can’t.

This is a new evening of performance by two critically acclaimed artists, collaborating for the first time.

Commissioned by Dance City and Fierce Festival. Supported by ARC Stockton, Wainsgate Chapel, Shoreditch Town Hall, Northern Stage, Northumbria University and Roehampton University.

Design – Tim Spooner
Lighting Design – Nao Nagai
Original Music – Sammy Metcalfe

This season we are presenting SIX full length performances Made In the North East (MINE) with support from Dance City. This is the biggest season of MINE works we’ve ever presented and we think it’s worth celebrating with this fantastic offer. When you book all six MINE shows the bundle price is £39, saving up to £26 on the full price tickets. If you can’t make any of the performances, pay it forward by returning that ticket and we’ll offer it for free to a Dance City Training Academy student.
