Anda Winters announces new season at Print Room
The season opens with the world premiere of dance show Flow, billed as an "innovative collaboration of dance, design and music" led by associate artist Hubert Essakow.
Running from 6 to 23 Febuary 2013 (previews from 4 February), the production is inspired by water and will feature five dancers. It will be staged in the round "in an ever-changing waterscape", with design by Tom Dixon and music composed by Peter Gregson.
Flow is followed, from 2 to 27 April 2013 (previews from 27 March) by a revival of Brian Friel's Molly Sweeney by the 2011 JMK Award runner-up Abigail Graham. The 1994 play centres on a woman, blind since infancy, who undergoes an operation to try to restore her sight.
Completing the season in the main house is Amy Herzog's new play 4000 Miles. The production, directed by James Dacre, transfer to the Print Room from 14 May following performances at the Theatre Royal Bath's Ustinov Studio.
Complementary programming includes performances, exhibitions and post show discussions, which will be presented in the newly created Print Room Balcony. In January 2013 the Balcony launches with two one-act plays, Ivy & Joan by James Hogan. Following in March will be a week of performance/assemblage by artist Alice Anderson in a co-production with Riflemaker.
Anda Winters, who is now sole artistic director following Lucy Bailey's departure earlier this year, said today: "I am very pleased to announce The Print Room's new season, in which we continue to present work across drama, dance, music and visual arts. We've added to our space with the opening of The Print Room Balcony, a new intimate and flexible exhibition/performance area. I am particularly proud that this new season so distinctly demonstrates how our dynamic venue will continue to stage exciting work by both emerging and established artists."
