RETINA DANCE COMPANY PRESENTS
THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 RUNNING TIME: 65 MINS Choreographer: Filip Van Huffel Composer: Joris Vanvinkenroye Dancers: Robert Guy, Steven Martin,Matthew Slater, Brian Tjon Tjauw Liem A raw and exhilarating piece of athletic dance in which four great young male dancers are joined by a double bass player. Powerful and energetic movement demonstrates the skill of the dancers and emphasises their connection with the live soundscore. The dancers collide, caress, fight, play and reject as they stampede along their own pathway, with quirky solos interrupting feisty duets and athletic group work. By manipulating the sound of his double bass, both acoustically and electronically, acclaimed Belgian composer/musician Joris Vanvinckenroye creates a rich musical landscape, which drives the performance with percussive power. ï¿½Van Huffel...bends his dancers in amazing shapes with an intriguing interplay of limbs, quirky balances and exciting athleticism.ï¿½ Stephanie Ferguson - The Guardian Antipode was made possible with support from Arts Council England, ccBe Antwerpen and Nottingham City Council.
