Henri Oguike Dance Company

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.

Front Line/White Space/F.P.S. Parts 1 and 2 /Finale

Front Line - Qguike's signature piece is a sextet danced to Shostakovich's 9th Quartet in E Flat. The moods of the music are constantly shifting. The instruments squeal like animals and engage in wild stamping dances. White Space - Scarlatti's bright and rhythmic pieces for harpsichord provide the starting point for this stylish new work for seven dancers. Oguike explores the design, dynamics and rhythm in live dance and on film, where he brings his choreographer's eye to the camera. F.P.S. (Frames Per Second) Parts 1 and 2 - This exquisite solo, danced by Oguike and made in collaboration with lighting designer Guy Hoare, traces the relationship between movment, light and sound. F.P.S. Part 1 is set to the Kronos Quartet's string version of Bill Evan's Piece Peace. For F.P.S. Part 2, Oguike returns to the original piano version to create a new duet. Finale This celebratory work for the whole company is set to the Latin-rhythms of French composer, Rene Aubry.
