Tickets for Gaudete at The Lowry
The life of a Yorkshire village is shattered when elemental spirits replace the parish priest with his double. Alternative realities collide as this changeling interprets the gospel of love in his own alarming fashion. What goes on at the WI meetings? OBRA’s eight strong international ensemble interweave the visceral language of Hughes’ seminal work with intimate physicality and dynamic choreography, accompanied by a cinematic soundscape and live junkyard percussion. This is theatre that embraces the transformative power of language and the body; dark, complex and touching, Gaudete is a physical and lyrical feast of ensemble theatre.
