The Distance You Travelled | Freefall Dance

Choreographed by Emily Dobson & Grace Sellwood, Performed by Josie Ellis, Steph King, Alexa Mason, Rosie Sellwood and Jenny Tripp, Music: Vitamin String Quartet and The Chromatics

To create the piece we worked with images, poetry and quotes based around the themes of success, ambition, happiness and accomplishment. We wanted to explore these ideas through abstract movement set to a driving soundtrack. Made with dancers from our weekly open level class.

Effete | Emily Dobson

Performed by Grace Sellwood & Kuldip Singh-Barmi, Music: Sophy Smith (Motionhouse)

Effete is a delicate piece physicalising power struggles within a relationship. The dancers explore the limits of their relationship as the female performer falls with demanding repetition, her eyes closed throughout much of the piece. The piece is in-part development, originally created during a research project funded by The Arts Council England, Dance South West and The Works.

Die Einsame Liebe | Lauren-Nicole Shuker

Performed by Emma-Jane Martin, Grace Nicol, Harley Kealty, Hannah Jelly and Katie-Dale Everett, Music: Edward Elgar, Schubert, Astor Pizzolla and Mozart

An exploration of one woman’s psyche. Emotions unfold as she falls in love with someone who does not exist.

The Living (Part 3) | Emmalena Fredikkson

Performed by Emmalena Fredikkson

Where tide and time wait for no man the process of finding a physical form – a dance – of thoughts begins with the notion of life and it’s certainty of death.  This excerpt from ‘The Living’ continues the exploration of living structures within and those that surround us.

Fragile Lines | Sophie Colthurst & Grace Sellwood

Performed by Sophie Colthurst & Grace Sellwood, Music: Noir Désir and Johnny Cash

Concerning relationships; the trust, the love, the fragility, and the destruction that connections between us can bring. The idea developed from Pablo Neruda’s an ‘Ode to Clothes’, where we drew imagery of snapping threads and bursting seams.

Passing Places | Spindrift Dance Company (SAT NIGHT ONLY)

Choreographed and performed by Sarah Farrow-Jones and Suzie West, Music: ‘Golden’ by The Land of Giants

Echoes of ourselves, Layers and layers of life, You and me, We’ve seen it all before, You and me, Are hard core souls

Revealing Eve | Charlotte Eatock

Created and performed by Charlotte Eatock, Music ‘L ‘Aguardiente’ by Camper Van Beethoven
