A bold and revealing new work that gets under the skin of its creators, performers and audiences.
Selected for British Dance Edition 2014.
Directed by Deborah Light - one of Wales’ most distinctive choreographers.
Place Prize semi finalist and Creative Wales Award winner.
Devised and performed by three outstanding female performers:
Jo Fong (Rosas, DV8), Eddie Ladd (Volcano, Brith Gof), Rosalind Hâf Brooks (Earthfall, Kitsch & Sync).
vb to keep out of sight; conceal from view.
n a shelter for watching wildlife.
n the skin of an animal.
Exposed in a stark environment three remarkable women reveal and re-invent themselves to create a visceral performance that is bold and intimate. This full length show combines physical languages, that range from the subtle to the extreme, with visual imagery, spoken word, and an original sound score.
They form, transform and reform.
Are they showing themselves?
Do we see them?
HIDE interrogates the multiplicity of human nature by blurring the boundaries between autobiography and fiction, and between reality and the show. In doing so it deals with notions of (dis)appearance and (in)visibility?
