ED2012 Physical Review: Dance-Forms 60th International Choreographers’ Showcase (Dance-Forms Productions)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Physical Reviews

You get a lot of dance for your money, here, and it’s non-narrative dance that is the order of the day: the showcase is split into two halves – ‘Synapsequence’ and ‘Five Dances’, and the choreography of both places emphasis upon music, dancer relationships and body manipulation. ‘Five Dances’ is a relatively playful piece; dancers weave in and out of each other, making eye-contact, whilst ‘Synapsequence’ is more aggressive with performers using strips of light at various points. At times the dancing did appear a little self-contained, but this is quickly forgotten once such dynamic, fluid floor work is seen, and this showcase is perfect for those wishing to get better acquainted with the contemporary dance style.

C, 5-11 Aug, 11.00am.
