Faultline pictures

We are pretty thrilled to host the world premiere of Shobana Jeyasingh’s new work, Bruise Blood, on 21 and 22 October. But we are even happier that Bruise Blood will be presented alongside the acclaimed piece Faultline.

The dance in Faultline includes gestures from bharatanatyam, influences from capoeira, and contemporary dance in the western tradition, and is quite fast paced, with some impressive lifts that are done in almost slow-motion. This very athletic movement is matched by a compelling score by Scanner with composition for live voice by Errollyn Wallen, and there is a fierceness, an ‘excited restlessness’ (said The Times) in the piece that reflects our urban living today, and the tensions amongst British Asian youth in particular. Well worth seeing!

Here are a few images from Faultline. All credit to Chris Nash.
