Internationally renowned Wired Aerial Theatre has created a beautiful 1940s-themed duet To Me, To You… about the ups and downs of life for a very regular couple. Set amongst their domestic paraphernalia, the couple perform on the ground and in the air on a rotating, pivoting structure encased in roses. Using Wired’s characteristic fusion of contemporary dance, physical theatre, aerial performance and gymnastics, the pair meet, fall in love, settle down and fight before eventually achieving equilibrium symbolised through their physical balance on the set. To Me, To You… is gritty as well as romantic and nostalgic, encouraging audiences to connect with the characters and be touched by their story.
To Me, To You… was commissioned by Without Walls and Brighton Festival and was originally created with Liam Steel as directorial consultant. Wired received additional support from Culture Liverpool to rework the show into its current form in 2018 and it has since been performed at the Three Festivals, Tall Ships Regatta in Liverpool and most recently at Arts by the Sea Festival in Bournemouth.
