Unbroken is Nikki Rummer’s debut as a solo performer: beloved father David Bruce Rummer summons his family for one last Christmas with the whole clan. Across three bittersweet weeks, three generations celebrate the life a man who demands to be remembered, looking wide-eyed to the past to make sense of their rapidly changing futures. Told through the eyes of a daughter, Unbroken is a one-woman show that brings a whole family to life. The pieces of memories and fragments of secrets are woven into the body of one performer as she unpicks the question: Am I going to end up like them? Combining her talent for storytelling and her unique movement language inspired by her acrobatics, gymnastics and capoeira practice, Nikki tells a very personal story with universal resonance.
This production has been co-commissioned by The Lowry.
