Picnic by Etta Ermini Dance Theatre
Picnic is a 20 minutes outdoor physical theatre work by Etta Ermini Dance Theatre. The performance features a young couple whose lush and joyful picnic is disrupted by the quirks and pitfalls of their relationship. Audience interaction, food, comedy and a highly dynamic movement vocabulary make Picnic an enjoyable experience for children and adults alike.
Beautiful synchronized movement, playful comedy and great story telling all came together in this delightful production by Etta Ermini Dance Theatre. This is dance theatre at its best and being transported on a freezing cold winter’s day to a picnic in high summer was a welcome and enjoyable treat!
