Anthony Nikolchev’s ‘All The Things You Said You Never Said Before You Thought You Could Ever Say’ Directed by Vivien Wood


All things you said


All The Things… is a physical performance exploring the dual reality of what we express overtly to the world and what we un/intentionally keep hidden in the recesses of the subconscious. Following the near disintegration of one couple’s relationship, the piece follows four actors as one couple in minor mundane conflicts until we realize there’s a deeper frustration, to communicate something underneath. But ‘what’? Meanwhile, a disaster hangs in the air, forcing the couple to see that things not said may never get said if not now.
