Love, loneliness and longing in the twilight hours - in cities which never sleep, night hawks are falling in love, out of love and over the edge.
Inspired by the photography of Nan Goldin, "Shadowmouth" is about people trying to connect in a landscape of disconnection, the power of desire, and being alone late at night.
Combining hypnotic language with arresting dance theatre, this bold and thrillingly new show salutes the underbelly of urban life. "Shadowmouth" opens at the Sheffield Crucible on 1st June 2006, directed and choreographed by Dominic Leclerc, Resident Director at Sheffield Theatres in 2005, where he assisted on many productions, including "Don Carlos" and "Ain't Misbehavin'".
Meredith Oakes's plays include "The Neighbour for the National Theatre" and "Faith at the Royal Court", both published by Oberon.
