THIS BRIGHT FIELD
Clinkard and his company of twelve exceptional dancers, have crafted a dance event in two distinct parts that imaginatively reorientates the audience to consider the subjective and objective gaze and experiences of togetherness.
In Part one, the audience are invited in small groups to share the stage with the performers as they deftly collapse and expand a maze of screens to direct and edit the audiences’ experience of their dancing. Within the miniature worlds created, time slows as captivating and unrepeatable exchanges between the performers elicit an atmosphere of intimacy and care.
In Part two, Clinkard’s choreography takes to the full stage on a cinematic scale. Back in the auditorium seats and with the familiarity of individual dancers still in mind, the audience witness the twelve-strong cast navigate a series of social and choreographic conditions. Degrees of agency within the group setting are explored as visceral terrains of movement, sound and imagery gradually build in momentum until This Bright Field, powered by connectedness, becomes a highly visual and emotional experience.
