Feet off the Ground Dance

Éter

“Feet off the Ground Dance are a charming outfit who perform inventive and surprising dance that hypnotise all who watch them” – Xav Clarke, Musician

Éter is a powerful yet subtle piece of dance, drawing audiences into the world of four women. Journey through atmospheric shifts accentuated by a live musician and captivating lighting states.

 

About Feet off the Ground Dance

Feet off the Ground Dance is a performance collective made up of four young women. They create work that is physical, spontaneous and engaging, and is rooted in the art forms of Contact Improvisation and Partnering techniques. Their principles are simple: explore the unfamiliar, take risks and think big with artistic integrity.

Choreography & performance: Robyn Holder, Sophie Thorpe, Lucia Chocarro, Patricia Zafra
Live Music: Panos Chountoulidis


Maria Lothe/Rachel Blomberg

(DI)VISION

In a landscape of cardboard boxes, a journey of clear and unclear thoughts unfolds through the minds of two individuals. Blurry questions, decision-making, external influences. A wonder between humour and darkness, conflict and vision.

About the artists

Lothe and Blomberg both studied at the School for New Dance in Oslo and Trinity Laban in London. The Norwegian duo has been improvising and creating works for several years, and are also members of Backspace Collective. They share an interest in a personal and individual approach to improvisation, and enjoy sharing dance with a Scandinavian flavour across countries and public spaces.

Supported by Rom for Dans, Norway and Longfield Hall, London, U.K.
