Susan Kempster and Nicholas Minns
Black Widow: on dying and the art of not complaining

A duet that celebrates lament as a type of complaint. The male black widow gives his life without complaint, for the survival of the species. Or does he?

Nicholas Minns trained at the Rambert School and with Roger Tully. He worked for nine years in Montreal as a dancer with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens. Since 2009 he has been working in numerous projects as a dancer in London. He also writes about dance on the blog Writing About Dance.

Susan Kempster won first prizes in the Madrid and Burgos choreographic competitions in Spain and her works have been shown in several countries around the world. She has been living in London for the past 2 years. 
Susan and Nick first collaborated together in a creative residency at Dance Research Studio

TenOverSix
Unwinding I

The body takes on the rhythms of speech, moving from the audible to the physical and back again. A frenetic, unrelenting stream of consciousness, where meaning is found and lost.

Here she stood…locked…frozen…until it began…

She opened her mouth and out it poured…
Unstoppable…unflinching2…

Gathering…Questioning…Searching…
Attempting to swallow but…

Relentless it flowed on…

This is the company’s second work investigating the interweaving of text and dance in performance.

Scatterlings
All Over and Everywhere

Borne out of issues surrounding nations, migration and belonging, this work deals with post-Brexit blues and bad news through the creation of an imagined, borderless republic.

Once upon a time in 2014, a disparate band of dancers descended on Deptford to form Transitions Dance Company. Here, an unlikely alliance began, which later became known as Scatterlings

Scatterlings are a collective of five dance artists; Leanne Oddy, Saara Hurme, Vanessa Michielon, Izzy Brittain and David Kam, who hail from and are versed in a range of places and backgrounds - none of which might suggest that they were destined to grow dances together. 

Their interests are inconsistent, their perspectives precarious, and they embrace this difference and diversity variously, through communal ranting, chanting and dancing.
