Joe Moran: FORWARD

7pm – 7.50pm Film and Durational piece in Djanogly Art Gallery 8pm Theatre programme in Djanogly Theatre £15 (£12 Concessions) Running time: approximately 90 minutes including interval Suitable for: 14+ A fresh voice in British dance, choreographer Joe Moran(semi-finalist Place Prize 2012) brings five distinctive new dance works to Lakeside’s Djanogly Art Gallery and theatre. Beginning in the gallery, Singular is a durational performance installation problematising its performer’s subjectivities through conceptual and perceptual puzzles. In counterpoint the film of The Modulated Body, Moran’s commissioned by Ordovas for Movement and Gravity: Bacon and Rodin in dialogue, is a new dance work that responds to the interplay and elegance and violence in the work of Francis Bacon and Auguste Rodin. In the theatre, Obverse, commissioned for The Place Prize, is a powerful trio danced to a striking score in which dancers’ physical and perceptual virtuosity is tested from one moment to the next. Survey is a compelling solo for dancer Marina Collard which contrasts abstract movement against the physicality of the dancer. The Swarm Duet plays on the edges of chance to set free the poetry and immediacy of dance. ‘Moran's interpretation explodes with the energy and insouciance of youth The Globe and Mail (Canada) ‘He expresses his own willfully deviant dance vocabulary’ Presented in partnership with Dance4 Obverse was commissioned for The Place Prize for dance sponsored by Bloomberg Post show discussion with Paul Russ, Director of Dance4
