Laban Theatre is delighted to present the premiere of Between, a beautiful new performance installation by highly regarded collaborative duo, choreographer Angela Woodhouse and Jerwood prize winning artist Caroline Broadhead. Between will be performed eight times across two days, on Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 January, at 6.30pm, 7.15pm, 8.15pm and 9pm.
Between is Woodhouse and Broadhead's seventh collaboration, and follows the success of their recent critically-acclaimed work, Sighted (Royal Opera House Deloitte Ignite, 2009).
Between explores the tension between visual spectacle and the hunger for intimacy. Three dancers perform in silence amongst their audience who are at liberty to move freely in the space. The audience becomes aware of minute yet charged interactions, sensitivity to temperature and breath, the power of touch, and bearing witness. These are set against moments of visual spectacle. The intention is to elevate a sense of humanity, of one's power and vulnerability in a technological world where much is made of the virtual connectedness and yet the visceral disconnection of one person to another.
Between has been created in collaboration with outstanding dancers and long-time collaborators of Woodhouse and Broadhead - Stine Nilsen (Co-Artistic Director of Candoco Dance Company), David McCormick (DV8 Physical Theatre, Richard Alston Dance Company) and Italian performer Martina Conti (Firenza Guidi).
Through the interplay of dance, materials and light, Woodhouse and Broadhead generate highly charged and atmospheric audience experiences. Previous works include the acclaimed Court (2003-6) and Sighted (2009, produced by The Place and commissioned by ROH Deloitte Ignite), and most recently, Censor(ed), for which they were awarded the Maven Commission for Woking Dance Festival 2010 in collaboration with Tate Artist Rooms (Jenny Holzer).
Between is supported by Arts Council England, Central St Martin's College of Art & Design and Trinity Laban.
