Residency 29 February – 4 March

New Work

Liminal Dance

Gemma Williams will be collaborating with Dance Artist Justine Lim, company member, and Jason Lim, visual and sound artist. Justine and myself want to play with the idea of creating a duet which then can be used as a movement stimulus for the whole work. This is our initial phase of this work in which will then go on to progress into a collaboration with young people. Working with the interests of young people in playing computer games we wish to bring them out of this virtual world to create a piece in which they can build their own physical world through dance, movement and video technology.

We want to explore concepts of how the audience could interact with the dance and make choices which would affect the dance around them.

Company Class Thursday 3 March 10.00-11.30

A contemporary warm up with aspects of Qi Gong incorporated, leading to movement phrases continuing these elements. We will then explore concepts we are investigating within the residency.

Company Showing Friday 4 March 17.00
