TAG, YOU ARE IT! BUT NOW YOU ARE ALL GROWN UP.
First commissioned for the Footprint Dance Festival, 'Tag' was originally performed as a site-specific piece in the grounds of Roehampton University. Adapted for the stage, it came to Resolution 2017 as an extended piece that explores the physicality and diversity of the playground behaviours of childhood and this time look into its relashionship with our experiences as adults.
See the world once more through the eyes of a child. 'Tag' allows the dancers to be as competitive, creative and playful as we all were as children, and asks you what are you missing, what is that you reach for and who manipulates you?
TAG will be presented along with:
Whose Round is it Anyway?
This piece is an excerpt from a 50-min work – Launch Day, which toured theatres in the North East in 2016, supported by Arts Council England and co-commissioned by Dance City/Queens Hall Hexham. Inspired by the paintings of Alexander Millar and informed by research with former shipyard workers; the choreography takes Millar’s iconic characters known as ‘gadgies’ and brings them to life on stage. A celebration of the industrial heritage of the North East, this piece displays large-scale projections of Millar’s paintings and a soundtrack featuring music by Mark Knopfler and an original score by Irish composer Breifne Holohan.

Body and mind can become one and generate movement. This work is the result of an interest and investigation in how dancers movement can arise from memories, images and feelings.
The choreographic material comes from the dancers’ process maturation. We will present an intimate and warm performance, in which dancers will share their personal experience through individual movement.
