Dance Theatre Double Bill: Gravity by Motionhouse & Gibbon by Patfield & Triguero/Gandini Juggling

Wed 26th June 2019
The Old Quad@Rugby Festival on The Close, Rugby, CV22 5EH

GRAVITY

by Motionhouse


As we approach 50 years since the first moon landing, our brand new duet Gravity combines hand-to hand acrobatics with Motionhouse’s signature contact choreography. Using breath-taking balances and extraordinary trust, Gravity sees two white-clad performers in an evocative exploration of weightlessness and zero gravity. An overwhelming sense of isolation underlies the precise, haunting choreography.


“Motionhouse have raised the bar for outdoor presentation of contemporary dance – their highly inventive yet simple staging means that we have the opportunity to present dynamic and lively dance as part of the festival.”
Angus MacKechnie, Producer | Watch This Space Festival, National Theatre

GIBBON
by Patfield & Triguero, co-produced by Gandini Juggling. 

Gibbon is a surreal and charming feast of juggling choreography, with a sense of humour and a hint of absurdity. Achieving success while masking failure, a narrative is formed as the action cuts between the creation and the execution of hypnotic patterns and juggling movement sequences.
