Clinging between past and future, the bridge has been destroyed and rebuilt a thousand times. A young woman is caught in its history; another one desperately needs to get across. But the stubborn bridge-keeper stands in their way and will try to stop them, no matter what …
With humour, daring and exceptional physicality, The Bridge reverberates with our battle to defend our place in the world, whilst trying not to destroy it… again…
The Bridge was first performed on the 26th of May 2007 with its last performance on the 23rd of August 2009.
