Glass-Eye Theatre bring their exciting production of The City and Iris to the Bay Theatre on Thursday 13 March at 7.30pm. This will be the company's debut at the venue and in Weymouth. The City and Iris is a physical, visual and comic feast. The action centres around Iris (played by Julia Correa) while 'The City' is performed by a talented chorus of five actors.

Without a set, the ensemble create Iris's world themselves. Ingeniously contorting their bodies and a length of red rope, they become the creaky wardrobe in Iris's bedroom, the books in the library and the lifelike trees on her walk to work. The ensemble also create all sound effects, from Iris's radio alarm clock to her rattling commuter train, as well as a 'soundtrack' in the form of a recurring and haunting four part harmony.

Glass-Eye Theatre specialise in physical storytelling. Hailing from five different countries, the company work collaboratively to create image-based, physical storytelling from scratch. They manipulate objects, bodies and voices to create a unique and enigmatic world of physical theatre.
