Interactive dance show at Norwich Puppet Theatre
18:49 17 October 2014
A interactive dance performance exploring our relationship between people and their city is set to take to the stage tomorrow.
Norwich-based Ensemble Dance Company is presenting the show - called Still in the City - at Norwich Puppet Theatre tomorrow at 7.30pm.
The company was set up by dancer and choreographer Hayley Matthews in the spring and is made up of a set of dancers, artists and musicians working with improvisation.
Miss Matthews choreographed Still in the City and is also performing in the show alongside Zoe Mote and Laura Coutts, with live music by Brian Korteling.
She said: “The piece explores the relationship between people and their cities, in a world where we live disparate, disconnected lives. It asks can we reconnect with moments of stillness; can we relate again through seeing each other; can we re-establish connection by being present in moments of togetherness and solitude?”
She said the audience would also be invited to join in with the production.
“As connections are built, broken and re-made the line blurs between audience member, participant and performer. Come and step into the unexpected and see this live work created under your very eyes,” she said.
Following the show’s performance at Norwich Puppet Theatre, the plan is for Still in the City to tour around the UK and explore connections between different people in different cityscapes
