Here’s a link to the show with Mike Ritchie, and a few photos
Our first gig at the Star………looking forward to the night
Cottier’s Theatre, Glasgow
IF THE Cottier Dance Project offers a much-needed platform for choreographers – different ages, at different stages, but all keen to try out new ideas – it also offers audiences a glimpse of what’s cooking behind (usually closed) studio doors. Watch This Space gave four dance-makers the floor for about ten minutes each: just enough time to suggest the thrust and style of what a longer piece might look like – and to leave you wanting more. This was especially true of Rosina Bonsu’s Stateless which, as the name implies, focussed on the power-plays between those who “belong” and outsiders who are rebuffed. Using nine dancers, and a graphic strategy of taping the floor into zones, Bonsu gave visceral force to images of exclusion, as when Brian Hartley repeatedly flung himself into a close-packed community only to be forcefully catapulted out.
Just found out I have a showcase gig at Innerleithen on the 19th August at 18:15. My first proper festival gig……hey!
Supporting the Full Nelson, a Willie Nelson tribute band.
A collaboration with Rosina Bonsu and Robert Henderson which was performed at Cottiers on the 20th July 2016.
More photos will follow.
More details coming soon, but we’re glad to be able to contribute. Meanwhile here’s one of our demos.
Come along for a night of music, song and poetry…….all free (contributions welcome)
