Static carcasses inhabit the stage, as ethereal presences hinting at the ephemeral aspect of life. A spark of vigor brought by the dancer begins a conversation about the ever-changing body and the cycles it goes through. Short stories on what we are and what we become.
Clémence is a London based artist. Her work is predominantly sculpture that touches on subject of memory, physicality of loss, ageing and solitude, through a humorous eye. Ellen is a dance artist with a lively expression and her interest lies in the co-existence of dynamic physicality and delicate sensitivity that reveals the performer's human characteristics.
Evening is part of a triple bill with works by Emmeline Cresswell and Jayne Port.
Emmeline Cresswell : "A playful investigation into what it is to be human. Tipping from absurdity to tragedy three performers struggle to shed their human form and find temporary relief from being."
Jayne Port: "Two men enter a forest… A solo employing the ancient art of storytelling, this repeated saga moves from adventure to tale. Fear meets mythical creature and strange happenings ensue."
