Wendy Houstoun – 50 ACTS

Who was it who said, “Culture is something that is done to you, Art is what you do back to Culture?" asks Wendy. She’s not sure, but this project is about her wanting to backchat culture. Wendy, one of the UK’s leading movement/theatre artists, with 30 years experience as a performance maker sets about challenging a world devoted to youth by exploring the status of the (ageing) performer and pursuing the ambition to persist with a commitment to action. Wendy’s performance will be accompanied with reference materials, recorded work and documentation, allowing the audience to explore alongside her.

Sat 12 March, 3pm
Charles Linehan – Mixed Bill Inventions for Radio 1964 & the fault index

Both of the pieces within this mixed bill embody Linehan’s ability to create understated intensity through the interaction of movement, light and sound.

Inventions for Radio 1964 is a disturbing and beautiful duet piece performed to a score of people reflecting on their dreams by electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire. Site-specific lighting creates an under- water theme as the dancers reach the surface only to be forced back under into the ocean of dreams yet again

The Fault Index, performed by three men and one woman, explores the tension between unity and difference. Three ensemble pieces weave together disparate and independent choreographic elements in a percussive and spirited tour de force.
