A daring, sharp-edged piece of physical dance theatre, Justitia delves into the depths of our justice system, inviting the audience on an investigative journey as it unravels the multiple truths concealed behind a gripping crime story.
In a film-like replay of events, the audience witnesses the action from different perspectives – at the crime scene, in the court house, inside an intimate group therapy room – revealing new realities as a series of secrets unfold. A verdict must be reached – was it murder, manslaughter or self-defence?
Punctuated with provocative and dark humour, Justitia treats us to Vardimon’s unique brand of highly acute physical theatre, theatrically staged on a large revolving set. Fiercely athletic and intricately detailed, this production delivers a generous mix of energetic dance, a sharp script and an exhilarating soundtrack.
