The show

A man sits still amidst members of the public. Gradually, smoke begins to creep from out of his trouser leg. He crosses his legs and the smoke stops. Next it arises from his collar, then his sleeves. All the while he acknowledges this with a weary resignation, but what starts as a wisp ends up as an inevitable billow.

Smoke is a visual, non-verbal show that offers an abstract, gently comic & understated physical performance. It begins as a meandering walkabout of public interactions before becoming an unstoppable plumage.
