Running time: 55 Minutes Suitable for ages 14+ How much do movies influence us? Delving into American movie and homegrown TV culture, visual artist and performer Hetain Patel returns to Nottdance Festival once again in his highly anticipated first solo. With a personal and humorous take on identify shape-shifting, he shakes up our conception of who we are. Through a playful synthesis of vocal and physical imitations, he conjures up film characters from his playground days: see Agent Smith from the Matrix get physical with Spider-Man while Eddie Murphy argues with Michael Caine. Marvellous mimic that he is, he doesn't so much tell us about the movie characters that have taken up residence in his head, he physically becomes them. - The Guardian **** POST SHOW DISCUSSION Post show discussion with Hetain and Paull Russ, Artistic Director, Dance4
