PRIME Moving

In spring 2017 PRIME past and present came back in together for a two week residency entitled, First Thought Best Thought.

Ten choreographers were invited to each work with one member of PRIME to create a bespoke solo over the course of an afternoon. Choreographers and dancers were paired up at random, so was two weeks of chance!

Choreographers included:
Alan Greig
Angus Balbernie
Chris Stuart Wilson
Emma Jayne Park
Matthew Hawkins
Rhiana Laws
Sally Owen
Steinvor Palsson
Tamsyn Russell 
Vincent Hantam

After this residency a number of the solos were worked together and performed to Moving by Kate Bush, from The Kick Inside, as an homage to Lindsay Kemp. Moving was first performed as part of the Dance Base Illuminations Showcase in autumn 2017 as part of Luminate, Scotland's creative ageing festival.
