This is our first run through of our latest piece – Amicus Curiosus (Curious Friends). We are performing this piece in the Cumbria Youth Dance Festival and also applying for Lancashire Dance Festival (fingers crossed we are selected).
We filmed a rehearsal run for the Lancashire Dance Festival team to cast their eye over. There are two dancers missing, a few mistakes and we haven’t got all the choreography down yet, but we feel it’s a strong piece and are happy to show it off.
A true Curious Collaboration; everyone in the company has contributing something to the creative process. With this being our third piece we wanted to create a work that reflected our growth as a company – With a Little Help From My Friends – seemed a very apt choice.
The big builds in the Joe Cocker orchestration enabled us to play with the number of dancers on stage. At times filling the stage with our twenty strong dancer. Then dropping down to a focused few and occasionally just a solo.
We now have serious rehearsing of all our three pieces to do with four performances coming up over March and April. It’s been an amazing year so far and we have a lot more planned.
