Residency 30 May – 10 June

Ultimate Dancer/Divina Kniest


Research and development of the new performance YAYAYA AYAYAY (working title). This piece is a collaboration between choreographer Louise Ahl/Ultimate Dancer and performer Divina Kniest. Using the performance space as a site for personal transformation, they will be working with lighting and sound to create a choreographic, multi-sensory vision quest into the complex nature of emotional and physical darkness.

This process began in Autumn 2015 when Louise and Divina placed themselves in a darkness retreat. For 5 days, they isolated themselves from all light and interaction with any other people. The experience was deeply transformative and has inspired this next phase of research into how they can alternatively investigate and represent time and space.

Company Class: Thursday 2 & 9 June 10.00 – 11.30
