Love Through Double Glazing, a co-commission with London International Mime Festival, is a new performance created during the Covid-19 pandemic. Made especially for care homes, day centres and other settings where visiting is restricted, It's staged entirely outside (with windows closed at all times), but viewed from the inside where it’s warm, cosy and, most importantly, safe. No performers or staff need access inside the building.
About the show
Florence has a little white dog, a trolley full of tricks and a no-nonsense attitude. When visitors come to her care home, Florence is the first on the scene and the most in the know. So when (over-enthusiastic) Geoff the armchair fitness instructor, (over-pompous) Maurice the chef de cuisine and (overly clean) Keith the window cleaner arrive ready for work, Florence is waiting in the wings to disrupt their day.
Funny, cheeky and unashamedly silly, Love Through Double Glazing brings you clowning, music, food fights, bubbles and ballet, even a real life dog, creating the ultimate armchair enjoyment – all from the safety of your window seat.
Love Through Double Glazing is written and performed by Cirque du Soleil clown performer Sean Kempton, Rachael Savage, Artistic Director of Vamos Theatre, and Norah, the fluffy, white dog.
"It was a riot of fun and laughter, but most importantly, love. The show generated so much interaction and comment it brought back a sense of normality to us all." Richard White, DIrector, Stanfield Care Home, Worcester.
