“Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from or movement towards. Neither ascent or decline. Except for the point. The still point. There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.” – TS Eliot from Burnt Norton. Four Quartets.
‘No Time Like The Present’ is a talk for time carriers of all ages addressing the age-old theme of the nature of time and the bodies capacity and desire to dance. Taking the form of an discussion this dialogue for one is open to prompts, hints and heckles from the room and is part intellectual endeavour, part tabloid talk.
Wendy Houstoun is a movement/theatre artist with distinctive style that combines movement with text and meaning with humour. She has worked extensively as a solo performer, and in collaboration with companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre, Forced Entertainment, Lumiere and Son Theatre.
Part of Conversations on Dance and Age
‘No Time Like The Present’ is presented as part of Conversations on Dance and Age in partnership with Dance East, Sadler’s Wells and Yorkshire Dance.
Between May and July 2022, as part of Host, Elixir and Ageless Festival, we invite audiences to gather to listen, explore and respond to three conversations which place questions and provocations about dance and age at their heart.
Each conversation is curated by an independent artist or collective and will open up dialogue about perceptions, artistry, risk, care and progression.
This is a pay as you feel event. All pay as you feel donations are invested back into future festivals.
