Sound/dance performance/ritual for Feast Festival, Great Malvern, 2021
We have been isolated and alone for far too long. Holding ceremonies of self, vigils for the last vestiges of someone who can not be, can not wake up even when eyes are wide open; we can not bare to let go.
“Memory Foam” is a ritual for both the audiences and performers. An experimental mix of theatre, dance and sound that explores the difference between sleeping and dreaming, between real and un-real. Live soundscapes that are based on brain wave patterns in sleep, created and corresponding in response to contemporary tap dance. It explores the ego split and trapped between the ever-underlying will to be, reaching for ideals in memories rather than future aspirations, and fear of failing and therefore of act of living.

An abstract and contemporary performance that explores the other side of rebellion, the destructive nature and causes of it.
The 4th Duke of Newcastle, an anti-hero whose castle was burnt during the 1831 reform riots. When stubbornness, ignorance and selfishness meet hunger for a change – an explosion is unavoidable.
