Broken Air is an imaginative solo physical theatre performance inspired by the tragic death of Cornish landscape painter Peter Lanyon. The show borrows its title from WS Graham’s posthumous poem, ͞The Thermal Stair͟.
Like the poem, it doesn’t shy away from the circumstances of Lanyon’s death but celebrates the artist’s lust for life, his mischievous sense of humour and his rebelliousness. Broken Air delighted young and old at last year’s Brighton Fringe Festival with its lively mixture of mime, dance and slapstick. ͚’Dynamic and fantastically imaginative.͛ Alex Berdugo, The Verse.͚ ‘Evocative, thoughtfully made and performed with physical skill and integrity.͛ Lisa Wolf, Fringe
