Comedy preview: Vincent Dance Theatre: If We Go On, Newbury

Corn Exchange, Fri

Charlotte Vincent's latest work could have been inspired by Samuel Beckett and the closing words of his novel The Unnamable: "You must go on, I can't go, I'll go on." Vincent's cast of actors, dancers and musicians explore what it feels like to be waiting in the wings - of the theatre and of life - with only the basics of movement, words or song to entertain their audience and make sense of their existence. A list of collaborators drawn from the cutting edge of European performance include Wendy Houstoun, Patrycja Kujawska, Aurora Lubos, Alex Catona and Henry Montes. They ask who they are when they perform, and what gives them the confidence to do it, with surprises at every turn, from sudden exits to spontaneous bursts of song.
