LCP Dance Theatre is back at Edinburgh Fringe 2014 with extended version of ‘AM I’75MIN
After a successful premiere of ‘AM I’ during the last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013, LCP Dance Theatre is back with an extended version of ‘AM I’ including a new multinational cast of 7 performers: dancers and actors, music composed by talented Polish musician Sabio Janiak and text by well known Australian playwright Alex Broun.
This complex physical theatre performance draws awareness to human rights violations through dance and film. LCP’s ‘Am I’ finds its roots in the pain and struggle of human trafficking as inspired by the story of Sophie Hayes in her recent book “Trafficked.”
Hayes was a victim of the sex trade and trafficked by her boyfriend to Italy. In her harrowing biography, Hayes reminds us that anyone can find themselves in the same situation and “AM I” wishes to warn and to educate the public of this stark reality. Each year 27 million women are trafficked worldwide, mainly for labor and sexual slavery; only 1% are rescued, yet, very few of us are aware of this terrible reality.
“AM I” explores the complicated tale of victim and trafficker wherein both are slaves: often the roles bleed into each other making it difficult to see the line between either identity. In “AM I,” the trafficker becomes victim and vice versa. This production involves pain and confusion as seen through the eyes of dance and flowing movement. Vibrant, truthful and powerful, the performances are genuinely something different.
