Last Land And ‘Il Gioco Del Gregge Di Capre’ (Maria Nilsson Waller and Fabrizio Favale)

By | Published on Monday 12 August 2013

This double bill presents two well-crafted and complementary shows. In ‘Last Land’, inspired by the last two un-owned lands on our planet, the dancers perform a highly physical piece with strength and precision, while the choreography captures the immensity and timelessness of the landscapes. The beautiful newspaper set, at first reminiscent of maps, is cleverly utilised as the surrounding landscape, and the sublime nature of the piece is enhanced by exquisite music, performed by onstage musicians. The second performance, ‘Il gioco’, was inspired by the agility and rhythms of the bodies of mountain goats. Fabrizio Favale, a solo performer, commits a remarkable agility and expression to the piece, filling the space with at once precise and passionate movements.

Dance Base, until 17 Aug (not 5, 12), 2.00pm, 3.00pm, 5.00pm, 6.00pm, 7.00pm, 8.00pm, 9.00pm.
