Two friends meet Bob, a blob of light, and their world becomes brighter with him inside of it. With him they play games, make adventures and explore. But one day Bob fades away and the two are left to come to terms with his unexpected disappearance from their lives.
Using ground breaking interactive live projections, light manipulation, movement and sound, Bob will be a 50 minute piece performed by two Japanese movement artists, exploring bereavement and loss in a playful, accessible and truthful way for young people.
Bob is entering an R&D in Autumn 2019, and will go on to tour nationally and internationally in 2020.
