Transitions will perform a mixed bill of new, progressive dance work specially commissioned from both established and upcoming choreographers Stefanie Batten Bland, Ikky Maas and Dog Kennel Hill Project. The variety of three choreographers’ repertory offers a diverse programme, and a standard of performance that will excite dance enthusiasts.
Batten Bland’s physically demanding full company work has a strong theatrical flavour that is emotionally driven and poetic, evoking worlds of human communication and spirit.
Maas’ abstract and traditionally technical sextet is structured around a central duet set to a vibrant Handel score, the group fragments into trios, duos and solos as people subtly change allegiance.
Using text, voice and song, Dog Kennel Hill Project is known for creating pieces with an interesting audience/performer relationship. Difficult to categorise, but always with acute attention to detail and craft, the work is smart, eccentric and often very humorous.
