14 - 18 January:
Dance Base Associate Artist Luke Pell will be in the studio continuing to explore aspects of his practice concerned with the choreography of people, place and thought including projects he has been developing during the associateship so far: Selkie Was A Sea With (or...) with Kitty Fedorec and The Wait of Mountains with Janice Parker.
Company Class | Tuesday 15 January
Join Luke and collaborators in an open playful space for morning preparations that work with words and movements - words as movements - and the body as landscape, through a series of guided improvisations and rituals that draw on memory and materiality to listen, touch and move, differently.
1 - 5 April:
The Wait of Mountains
Perhaps we are like stones, our own history of the world is embedded in us, we hold a sorrow deep within and cannot weep until that history is sung
- Susan Griffin
A new, low-tech, performance duet between Luke Pell and Janice Parker.
Collectors of stones, writers of dances, in The Wait of Mountains Parker and Pell will come together with all kinds of people and communities to gather and share stories of geology, geography and genealogy, carried across generations, about different kinds of time, of love, loss and longing. What we carry with us, what we let go, what changes and what endures, what matter matters to whom.
In the week beginning 1st April Associate Artist Luke Pell and collaborator Janice Parker will be continuing to develop their project The Wait of Mountains. On Thursday 4 April they invite you to join them for a day of play and conversation. You can join them for the whole day or the morning or the afternoon.
Company Class | Thursday 4 April | 10.00 – 11.30

Company Showing | Thursday 4 April | 13.00-16.00
