DIG: Nora Invites Deborah Hay (UK) | Where Home Is
Dance collective Nora have invited the legendary Deborah Hay - of Judson Dance Theatre fame - to create new work for them: See their performance Tue 8/Wed 9 Oct at Tramway for Dance International Glasgow
Stephanie McMann, Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wellesley Wesley have been dancing together as Nora for over a decade, inviting choreographers to create new work for them to perform. Their latest invitation went to American choreographer Deborah Hay, who has been making exquisite, radical dances for over 50 years and was one of the founding members of Judson Dance Theatre. Together they have made Where Home Is, a trio for three dancers, performed with characteristic zeal, humour and love.
For the second part of the performance of Where Home Is Nora will host Playing Audience, an experiment devised by Hay and Nora that offers the audience the opportunity to see the stage through an entirely new lens.
‘…they are intellectually curious, funny and rude, possessed of chameleon stage talents and a taste for risk.’ The Guardian
‘It’s great to see these performers with their feisty, feminist agenda owning the stage, rather than decorating it.' London Dance
