NYDCS Tour 2022 – Sounds Like…
“In the particular is contained the universal” James Joyce
The bigger themes contained within our favourite films, songs and books connect us, offering a doorway into who we are and what we feel is important. What do they sound like, how do they make us feel, but more importantly, can we express how deeply they move us? Using the parameters of a simple game we encountered the frustrations of not always being understood whilst opening up an expansive space to express ourselves that breaks free from the rules.
Co-created by Anna Kenrick and Philippa Clark

NYDCS Tour 2020 – Beneath Words
By choreographer Anna Kenrick and dramaturg Philippa Clark.
Lighting Design by Simon Gane. Costumes by Jennie Lööf.
Conversations and debates grow in pace and rhythm as the dancers gather together to make sense of what connects them. The power of words surge through their bodies as they express their world views and personal politics, whilst seeking acceptance and patience. As the discussions shift from intimate and supportive to explosive and revealing, their physical expressions are what connect them most deeply.
Beneath words there’s a whole other language.
Saturday 7th March 2020 – Premiere at Destinations 2020 – Macrobert Arts Centre, Stirling
Monday 15th June – Sunday 21st June 2020 – Performance available to stream online.
