Brocade celebrates energetic alliances between unique female dancers and musicians. Sound and movement is propelled along a catwalk and sewn together by the rhythmic cadence of beats and jumps. Each performer's brio and state of play is both consecrated and unwound. Brocade is inspired by the practice histories of the contemporary performers it frames and the relationship between their ?work' and wider historical and contemporary notions of crafts and physical work. Directed and choreographed by Roberta Jean. Brocade has been developed through intensive residencies in England, Ireland and Scotland.
