My blog post was published on the F/T’s English website.
As previously I tried to make recommendations for people who want to experience the Festival but are worried about the language barrier.
If we believe brave souls like Andrew Haydon, there is still much to enjoy when watching a performance that you find verbally almost entirely incomprehensible.
Luckily F/T has plenty of productions in English, with surtitles (including Gotanndadan’s new work, pictured), or dance where words are mostly irrelevant. (There are also performances in Chinese, German and Spanish, just in case you thought they were too Anglophone.)
