Touch Compass performs at Cuba Dupa festival 19 & 20 March

TOUCH COMPASS at Cuba Dupa this weekend with three stunning works.

ROGUE

Touch Compass presents Rogue – an energetic, jigsaw of physical bodies in which uncanny stories and coincidences embrace everyday activities. The piece challenges roles of dominance and different styles of motion and connection utilising each dancers’ unique physicality. Choreographed by Malia Johnston and dancers with music by Eden Mulholland.

SATURDAY 19 MARCH

3:15pm – 3:30pm

SUNDAY 20 MARCH

2:45pm – 3:00pm

Ghuznee Street (opposite Leeds St carpark)

 

ROVING FRAME

From the company’s portable dance series Touch Compass dancers in collaboration with Wellington Integrated Dance bring you Roving Frame. This highly sculptural piece includes a series of solos, duets and trios that are performed within and around an ever-changing aluminium frame. Performers traverse between containment and freedom as they explore an evolving landscape set to a sound score by James Risbey.

SATURDAY 19 MARCH

2:00pm – 2:30pm

SUNDAY 20 MARCH

12:00pm – 12:30pm

Outside CQ Hotel, 223 Cuba Street

 

GROTTESCHI

Touch Compass’s iconic Grotteschi explores the magical world of Ava the Spider Woman and Argyle the Magnificent Mantis Man, two hybrid creatures that engage in a saga of seduction and struggle. Choreographed by Suzanne Cowan in collaboration with Adrian Smith, and with a score by Eden Mulholland, Grotteschi draws on the freak show and burlesque as it plays with notions of the grotesque.

SATURDAY 19 MARCH

4:15pm – 4:30pm

SUNDAY 20 MARCH

4:00pm – 4:15pm

Ghuznee Street (opposite Leeds St carpark)
