Referencing Hironymous Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights, haunting stillness descends into a torturous hell. Forbidden Fruit causes desperation, fear & retribution.
Choreographed by David Willdridge & Sg2
Dancers: Hannah Sampson, Nadenh Poan, Siobhan Hayes, Tomos Young | Composer: Jim Pinchen
Reflecting the patterns we create through the traces we leave and the threads that connect us. As our trails cross and our patterns interweave, we create a web of support that ultimately keeps us moving forward.
Choreographed by Tomos Young, additional material from Siobhan Hayes & Nadenh Poan
Dancer: Naden Poan
Nadenh is from Cambodia and this piece explores his relationship with his wheelchair and how it is a part of who he has become.
Slide with The Sun
Choreographed by Amy Butler and Sg2
Dancers: Hannah Sampson, Nadenh Poan, Tomos Young | Composer: Tom Austin
Slide with the Sun captures the dancers in four moments, allowing the audience to see the individual acts of each dancer; the interacting dancers; their competitive relationships and their resolve. Each dance is a suggestion of the bigger picture, the intention being the discovery of a perfect act.
