Pile of Bones

"We started this creative process back in August, in the depths of lockdown. All of us in our bedrooms, kitchens, hallways – crashing into furniture and dodging pets and housemates. We couldn't have known at that point how long we'd be trying to rehearse on Zoom, and in a way it's lucky we didn't, because weeks turned to months and at one stage we weren't sure if we were ever going to see each other in the flesh and make it into a studio together. But hooray, we finally did! And the euphoria of that first day back in the studio was very special.

"The dancers have worked with discipline, curiosity and creativity across the entire process of learning and re-working Pile of Bones, a work of mine from 2017. We worked hard to recreate the intricacy and speed of the big, relentless 'unison' section and reworked the Post It and Chairs sections, making them their own. It's been such an honour to watch the dancers, designers and technical team navigate the immense challenges with such grace, smarts and good humour, and to watch it come together so rapidly. Massive congrats and thanks to you all."
