Another chance to see the big hit of last year’s Festival. Smashed is a sensational mix of skill and theatricality inspired by the work of seminal German dance-theatre maker, Pina Bausch.

Nine extraordinary performers, eighty apples and crockery galore combine in a series of nostalgic filmic scenes, hinting at conflict and tense relationships, lost love and the quaintness of afternoon tea.

Sold-out at LIMF 2012, Smashed returns after extensive international touring.

Three performances only
