Showcasing work by emerging choreographers based in the North of England. The first of two such events this year, the evening promises three diverse approaches to movement, articulately performed by talented dancers working across the region. First up, Windows in Displacement, choreographed and performed by Akeim Toussaint Buck. An autobiographically sourced solo blending dance, song and spoken word to explore personal narratives, ancestral memory and the shifting (and increasingly urgent) politics surrounding the movement of people. Good Blood, by Keira Martin. Performed by the choreographer and her sister, Sioda Martin, this duo looks closely at the relationship between two siblings. Entertaining and familiar scenarios are refreshed and brought into focus to shed new light on family ties; the bonds that hold us together and the people that make us. Lastly, Depart by Daniel Phung Dance. A work exploring loss in all its forms and performed by Phung and dancers. A compelling depiction of endings and relived sorrows, fusing contemporary and urban dance theatre styles.Choreographer Akeim Toussaint Buck (Windows in Displacement).
