Lizzi Kew Ross & Co will perform Reading with Bach at the Laban Theatre on Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 April as part of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance spring season of dance programmes.
Three dancers and two live violinists explore what it is to read through movement and music as the audience witnesses, engages and speculates on the solitary act of reading. Reading with Bach investigates how our imagination allows us to construct worlds within ourselves, be led into minds, objects, space, architecture and worlds, and the collision or reality and imagination.
Lizzi Kew Ross & Co present a collective and collaborative approach to co-create work for the mercurial territory between dance and theatre. Choreographed by Lizzi, this work was developed as a result of her Walking and Talking Books events, where participants discussed one of a series of books while walking a number of interconnected routes through the City of London.
