A Swedish premiére

My new solo work, Achilles I, will be premiered next 13th of July during the RepNet Hot House programme in the city of Malmö, Sweden.

The member companies of RepNet (Skanes Dansteater, Carte Blanche, Iceland Dance Company, Tanzcompagnie Oldenburg and Scottish Dance Theatre) will showcase their inhouse choreographic talent, presenting works made by the dancers in two exciting evenings of new dance.
SDT will be presenting works by myself, Jori Kerremans, Julián Juárez and Matthew Robinson.
In Achilles I, I set out to explore the limits of my physicality as well as a certain notion of presence. The solo is also informed by the ideas of violence, resilience and perseverance. Achilles I was also a chance to collaborate again with costume designer Matthias Strahm and lighting designer Emma Jones (just click on their names to find out more about them).
I am very much looking forward to Thursday's premiére and I hope to have the chance of presenting the piece back in the UK soon. For more information on the RepNet Houthouse performances click HERE.
