Live Bites is a vibrant evening of dance by selected artists from across the North.
Featuring Muse by Alice Henry (Dance City), Adrift by Kapow (Dance Manchester), Untitled 1 & 2 by Claricia Kruitfhof (Dance Base) and Performance with Hope by Grace Surman (Yorkshire Dance).
Northern Platforms is delivered in partnership with several other key dance organisations in the North of the UK.
Muse is a physical exploration of the elite athlete’s physical and mental capacity, Alice’s admiration for, relationship to, and the unattainable pursuit of the superhuman. Alice addresses themes of strength, power and peak performance, expectation, pressure, confidence yet also weakness, vulnerability and fragility through a series of sound sketches.
Adrift tells the story of two women, lost at sea on a moving wooden raft.
The women are thrown to and fro, catching and losing hold of each other. As they linger precariously at the rafts edge they convey the rippling consequences of our actions and our responsibility to one another.
Here we are in a space together – Grace is raising a woman in front of you. She’s trying her best. Do you recognize something in her?
