A unique and sensual visual performance combining object theatre, kinetic art and an original live score.

Faux Theatre conjure an intimate wordless world, where the audience become voyeurs to one woman’s journey to find and experience love, accompanying her through euphoric fantasy into the depths of despair.

A fresh, compelling visual-theatre work created by one ofScotland’s most exciting new theatre companies.

Morton’s solo performance is a deliciously bitter-sweet slice of life. Her facial expressions, comic timing and ability to crunch a piece of paper into a wealth of believable props are a joy to watch. – The Herald

…a playful yet touching piece of sensual storytelling on the euphoria – and despondency – of love. – TVBomb
