Meeting Karpovsky

With Helen Moulder & Sir Jon Trimmer
Directed by Sue Rider

“In the dance of life Sylvia has two left feet, but Karpovsky has arrived to tutor her in hope and grace.”

For Sir Jon Trimmer’s special 80th birthday celebration, Helen Moulder and Sir Jon reprise their award-winning performance of Meeting Karpovsky, an extraordinary theatre work full of humour, delight, drama and surprise.

Sylvia knows all the dances and has all the moves in her head, but is afraid to step out. Then one day the great dancer Alexander Karpovsky – she has seen him dance 127 times – turns up mysteriously in her lonely room and breaks through her brittle cocoon...
