Ibrahim Quraishi: My Private Himalaya

Teddy bears, an old lamp, a space hopper, a big heap of stuff is strewn across the stage. Among these things are performers, singing, movement. In My Private Himalaya bodies and objects unite, becoming equals, both in energy and use. Letting us witness an intriguing game in which none of the things on the stage are ever straightforward.
