WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Enjoy a Spring Loaded triple bill.
Middlemost Nowhere - A duet of fractured tenderness and mysterious camaraderie. Harsh Arctic beauty and the instinct to survive combine to create a journey with no horizon. This piece was first created for the Place Prize 2012 by Jonathan Goddard and Gemma Nixon in collaboration with lighting designer Michael Hulls, it features an original score by Miguel Marin and costumes by Alice Walkling. Settlement - Settlement features two men and three large wooden boards. Following Robbie's relocation from London to the Highlands, the work considers themes of vulnerability; resolution; harmony; and the effort of holding things together. Equally, it is two men building stuff. Made predominantly in The Highlands, Settlement was originally commissioned by The Place for The Place Prize for Contemporary Dance 2012 sponsored by Bloomberg. Accompany - Accompany is an auto-biographical account of the frustrations, indecisions, non-beginnings and self-indulgences that can litter a creative process. The piece was born out of a quest to create something as two collaborative artists, who also happened to be in a relationship. What resulted was a clustered journey of different ideas, grinding at the egos of two different people, who share the same unconditional support for each other. That and the same fear of a deadline.
