Two bodies explore the complexities of independence and coexistence. An ongoing search for fine-tuned duality and independent bliss.
The pair were first introduced to each other as artists in the Brazilian Zouk partner dance community, where they became quickly inspired by the idea of working together. Both primarily established Contemporary dance artists, their experiences in BZ provoked a keen interest in developing this form of Latin dance for audiences outside of its usual social dance environment.
Dotty has already successfully established a familiar journey forming her own company working with Salsa (CONSLA) in Hungary and in 2015 Sarita began producing Contemporary Zouk student choreography. In 2016 the duo began when they were selected to represent Union Dance in an ENB programmed event, Big Dance festival with a 6 minute choreography.
This will now be premiered as a full 20 minute piece for Resolution.
A tender consideration of the emotional disorder that arises from losing a loved one. Salah El Brogy handles a potentially heavy subject matter – grief – but also memory, and how time can heal.
