Uniting artists from Ethiopia, London, Wessex and Yorkshire, Dance United presents an inspiring programme of work from Kwesi Johnson, Carly Annable-Coop, Helen Linsell and Dance United’s new associate artist Dam Van Huynh.
A Holding Space, the duet from which this evening takes its name, was created by Adam Benjamin and Russell Maliphant for award winning Ethiopian dancers Junaid Jemal Sendi and Addisu Demissie. A Holding Space explores the idea of journeys both real and imaginary – the journey of creation and friendships across two continents meeting in powerful performances.
Dam Van Huynh’s work delves into his vision of everyday life and people, and the manner in which dance can access a deeper layer of consciousness. Roost features six dancers from Dance United’s London Performance Company, while Inbetween receives its London debut performed by the Yorkshire Performance Company.
The evening will also include a new choreographic piece by Junaid and Addisu.
Matinee performance on Mon 22 October at 2pm.
