“Quarantine is quite simply a marvel, a company that’s right at the forefront of British theatre… immensely touching, totally human yet also intellectually rigorous in their examination of the nature of performance and the raising of questions about what makes theatre seem real and reality so strongly theatrical.” 
The Guardian

The manchester-based theater company Quarantine attended Gothenburg Dance and Theater Festival 2016 with the performance Wallflower now they are back to work for two weeks at the new Spring show. The starting point for Spring is nine pregnant women and their unborn children. A work of expectations and about the wait. Spring is the last part of Quarantine’s full show Summer. Autumn. Winter. Running. who has a newcomer at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival in May. The residence means that parts of the company will come to Vitlycke Center for Performing Arts in Tanum – and to Gothenburg – to deepen and refine the work of texts and ideas. Now at the end of Quarantine’s stay at the Vitlycke Center for Performing Arts, they will share his work in the form of reading and conversation with the audience.

Quarantine was formed in 1998 by artists Simon Banham, Richard Gregory and Renny O’Shea. Working with a shifting constellation of collaborators, the company makes theatre & other public events that are characterised by their intimacy, fragility and a playful instinct to place everyday life side-by-side with moments of rare, crafted beauty.
