Wendy Houstoun is presenting her latest solo Pact with Pointlessness at British Dance Edition on 16 March at Dance House, Cardiff.
Winner of Critics Circle National Dance Award 2014 for Outstanding Female Performance (Modern) Pact with Pointlessness offers a frank demonstration of how it feels to be knocked sideways by death, then renegotiate and carry on. A mix of comedy, spoken word and performance, Pact with Pointlessness is funny and moving in equal measure. Pact with Pointlessness Promoters Pack
“She asks the big, existential questions” Guardian **** ” … if Houstoun hadn’t chosen a career in dance theatre then she would have given Victoria Wood and Julie Walters some serious competition” Dance Tabs
