Details

Since he burst onto the scene in 1996, Henri Oguike has become a leading force in dance. Combining technical virtuosity with the immediacy of live music, his work has won numerous awards and given a creative blood transfusion to the world of contemporary dance. By turns thundering and gentle, visceral and flirtatious, the work of this dynamic young company. Little Red - Two of Vivaldi's magnificent violin concertos breathe fire into Little Red. Expression Lines - Set to the quietly beautiful Saharan blues of guitarist Ali Farka Toure, Expression Lines sees Oguike evoke the harsh contrasts of equatorial sand and sky in an intense yet reflective solo. Tiger Dancing - Inspired by Blake's poem The Tyger, the plucked strings and springy lines of Steve Martland's score are reflected by the dancers' sinuous and feline movements in Tiger Dancing. Green in Blue - Green in Blue sees the choreographer's first foray into jazz and a major new collaboration with the internationally renowned saxophonist Iain Ballamy. The dancers spark off Ballamy's band to infuse a crisp yet playful energy into this full company work. Henri Oguike Dance Company - Little Red/Expression Lines/Tiger Dancing/Green in Blue website.
