THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 RACHEL KRISCHE (UK) THE SWIMMER An iconic American choreographer. A set of choreographic instructions. A three month long, daily performance ritual. The Swimmer is the result of a process in which Rachel worked alongside 22 other performers to learn a performance by US choreographer Deborah Hay. The original piece The Runner offered a bizarre and delightful experience for audiences that, adapted by Rachel, results in a solo full of charm, humour and poignancy. RUNNING TIME: 20 MINS Production: Commissioned by Dance4. Choreography by Deborah Hay / adaptation and performance by Rachel Krische. PLUS PLUS PLUS PLUS PLUS PLUS PLUS ROBERT HYLTON (UK) I DON’T KNOW,WHAT DO YOU THINK? WORLD PREMIERE On a journey that encounters the sophistication of Radio 3 alongside the qualities of the rawest hip-hop, this solo sees the audience take on a role of cochoreographer as Robert exploits the relationships between himself and his spectators. Examining processes and choices between performer, music, audience and live performance we are led on an improvised journey on which we are asked: What do you think? RUNNING TIME: 30 MINS APPROX Production: Developed with support from Dance4. To book tickets please call the Box Office on 0115 846 7777.
