Brith Gof is internationally acknowledged as a leading experimental

performance company

- developing innovative ways of working across different media.

Uploaded Image

Brith Gof is part of a distinct and European tradition in the contemporary performing arts - visual, physical, amplified, poetic and highly designed. Rather than focusing on the dramatic script, its work is part of an ecology of ideas, aesthetics and practices which foregrounds the location of performance, the physical body of the performer, and relationships with audience and constituency. Brith Gof's works thus deal with issues such as the nature of place and its relation with identity, and the presence of the past in strategies of cultural resistance and community construction. The company works at all scales, from small solo works of storytelling to large epic works staged in locations such as disused factories, sand quarries, ice hockey stadiums, railway stations, abandoned farmhouses and even deep in the forest.

This site is a work in this line. It deals with what remains of Brith Gof's performances. But this site is not an archive in the sense of a gathering of texts and images that are meant to represent the history of the company since its founding in 1981.
