Originally created for the V & A, in response to the architectural and artistic context of the museum, I Only Laugh to Keep From Weeping explores notions of performance, beauty, excess, loss, ecstasy, and camp. 

Drawing reference from a range of aesthetics, particularly the Vanitas movement, this striking dance work seeks to challenge visual traditions. Grace Nicol works closely with composer Wilf Petherbridge & dancers Valerie Ebuwa & José Tomas to delve into ideas of presentation & representation.

This project was supported by Wac Arts, Trip Space and Dance Research Studio. Thank you to Claudia Palazzo.
