Supernova

Supernova is a work for five female dancers, who swirl, run, and leap their way through explorations of time, space and energy. The dancers show us moments of chaos and togetherness; bursts of great energy and spells of stillness. The dancers are tested to their limits, running in headlong flight, balancing precariously and even gently humming- all actions that show how sound and vibration is key to our existence. The soundtrack shifts between astral chimes, gongs and throbs, segments of Vivaldi’s Concerto Grosse in D minor and ends in intense drum and bass
