Lineal/The Corn Bunting

Steinvor Palsson and Lucy Boyes began working together during a residency with Liz Lerman and David Gordon at Dance Base in 2012. This sparked the beginning of a creative process together, working periodically to create two new solo pieces.

Steinvor’s solo, Lineal (working title), is inspired by stories of her Icelandic ancestors, which her mother has told her over the years. The work will explore themes of courage and hardship that permeate these true life events.

Lucy’s solo follows her fascination with what is apparently 'Britain's dullest bird', the corn bunting. The work delves into hierarchy in various senses.

Previously supported by Dance Base, Edinburgh and plan B, Ross-shire.
