Welcome to the Haslemere Fringe Dance page, 2018. This will be our 4th time featuring Dance as an individual art form in its own right at the festival. So we are very pleased to announce that this year we will be showcasing many different dance forms:
- Ballroom (just like Strictly)
- Dance Theatre & much more
All ages from local dance schools to National dance companies will be represented, so why not come along and check us out. Our acts will appear on this page as they become booked.
Lost explores the limits of what it is to be both physically and emotionally lost. The visceral and thought-provoking choreography of this male-female duet combines Motionhouse’s characteristic contact work, complex lifts and athletic precision with emotionally charged fluidity. Sensual connection between the two dancers is fused with raw emotion as one desperately fights to pull the other back from the precipice. The breath-taking lifts and instinctive quality of the dance make Lost an intimate, dramatic and passionate work.
Motionhouse is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
