Motionhouse - 12.50pm, 2.45pm. 4.50pm
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.
