Jasmin Vardimon's award-winning dance production Park at the Theatre Royal in Margate

Sadler’s Wells associate artist Jasmin Vardimon is a leading force in British dance theatre.

With her company now based in Ashford, Jasmin’s award-winning show Park will be running close to home in Margate for two nights this week.

Featuring an eclectic soundtrack that includes Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Brian Eno, it’s the story of a park, an urban oasis where eight characters play, fight, fall in love and learn to survive.

Young lovers wrestle in a historic fountain, a graffiti artist sprays his story, a busker finds his only appreciative audience in a bag lady, and a flag-waving bully rants worn-out political beliefs. But the park itself is under threat, as the public space is to be sold off.

“Bullying, otherness, alienation, gender and homelessness are all explored in this island of urban lives,” says Jasmin, 43, who choreographed the show.

Park is at the Theatre Royal Margate on Friday, February 6 and Saturday, February 7, at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £15. Visit www.theatreroyalmargate.com or call 01843 292795.
