Take; a dance in the park & Sugar - T951380238

Blue Eyed Soul are innovators of inclusive dance, always challenging themselves to go beyond what is perceived possible. These two daring pieces are an example. Take; a dance in the park is a bold aerial work performed by three dancers. They glide, float and spin around an aluminium rig, in an adventurous and playful journey through the performance history archives. Sugar is about one woman, Sally, and her wheelchair in her first aerial dance work.

Don't Push Me - TOUCH/Don't Touch/Catch/Hooked - T109952463

Blue Eyed Dance aim to turn the world of dance and disability upside down with this triple bill of dance and aerial work. TOUCH/Don’t Touch was jointly commissioned by Greenwich and Docklands International Festival and the Mayor of London. It was premiered in 2005 as part of ‘Dancing City’ at Canary Warf and presented as part of ‘Liberty’ London’s Disability Rights Festival in Trafalgar Square. CATCH Directed by Jess Curtis, CATCH defies convention as the all female cast - Claire Cunningham, Tanya Scully, Kate Mason, Victoria Malin, Rachel Freeman - perform an 18 minute aerial work that guarantees to inspire, entertain, thrill and scare. CATCH revels in the delights of defying gravity, working blind, being off balance, losing ourselves and finding each other. Derek Nisbet’s unique soundscore combines audio description, personal anecdotes and composed music. CATCH premiered in November 2005 as part of the Xposure05 Festival at Lillian Baylis Theatre Sadler’s Wells and featured in Blue Eyed Souls large scale production of Touch at the Shrewsbury Music Hall. HOOKED - devised and directed by Liam Steel, is about the insecurity of love and relationships. About waiting and wondering. About fearing the truth and acknowledging the moment you need to face it. Completing the ‘Don’t Push Me’ trilogy, Hooked uses the poetic analytical writings of psychoanalyst R.D. Laing and music from the cutting-edge band Bats for Lashes. This is Liam’s second project with BESDC; in 2003 he directed the critically acclaimed ‘Frankenstein’ which addressed the politics of cloning and the inherent fascism of our notions of being able to create a ‘perfect’ human being.Director Liam Steel.

Frankenstein - T0576429198

[Blue Eyed Soul Dance Company] is once again playing with fire in rewriting the rules of what dance should be in order to ask questions that dance never asks. In their latest production they have combined stunning visual imagery with brutally raw physicality, creating a dance theatre piece of monster proportions. Stitching together [Mary Shelley]'s gothic horror with unnerving glimpses of our factual future, eight performers create a terrifying view of 21st century genetics that reeks havoc through the world of dance.Director Liam Steel.
