Touch tales, Katharina Arnold and James Whittle
7:45PM – 8:15PM

Touch tales blurs the typical roles of dancer and musician in order to examine different forms of touch.

If the cello had hands it would play itself.
Since it has none, it lies there alone having only one wish: to be played, to sound, to sing, to do what it is supposed to.”

What makes touch loving, embracing, manipulative, neglecting, abusive?
Does the cello want to be played? Is it used without its permission – does it provoke with its curves? In this piece, a series of interweaving stories about touch reflect on the consequences of actions.

I know how to touch you, I know what you’ll sound like.
Tell me what you want. I’m listening.”

Fear of the Unseen, Dance Network Sheffield
9:15PM – 9:45PM

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown” (H.P Lovecraft).

Fear of the Unseen is a work progress inspired by Sir Hans Krebs – Professor of Biochemistry. This first phase of this work taps into our fear of what we cannot see, the idea of trusting someone else with your body and them making the decisions for you. Suspending, risk taking, catching and almost falling – the dancers play in a game-like fashion, maneuvering their way around each other to find connections.
