ED2012 Physical Review: Fast Portraits (Liz Roche Company)

By | Published on Wednesday 8 August 2012

‘Fast portraits’, is a stylish piece of dance. The fluid, elegant and minutely detailed choreography complements the simple staging: a chair that is incorporated in various ways into the dance, and a screen which shows video portraits of the dancers at various intervals. The dancers tumble and weave in and out of each other, appearing to react to each other’s movement, expressing a variety of relationships in the process. The intricate dance style and muted costume pallet and music gave this piece a very sophisticated quality. There were also various pieces of speech throughout the dance and it was a shame that many of these could not be heard clearly since they would have enhanced the piece.

Dance Base, National Centre For Dance, 4-12 Aug (not 6), times vary.
