Motion & Meaning

Motion & Meaning

DANSOX and the LHN Series join forces for this multi-disciplinary presentation of three new works that stretch the synthetic possibilities of music and dance. Over a four-day residency at St Hilda’s College, one of Holland’s leading contemporary music groups, Ensemble Klang, will be working with three composers from Oxford and several dancer-choreographers from Rambert Dance, including Simone Damberg Würtz and Liam Francis, and Toby Praetorius (Royal Danish Ballet).

‘Open’ rehearsals will take place each afternoon on 3-5 July, as well a fully-staged performance on the evening of 6 July.

CUE by Anna Appleby (Rambert Music Fellow and St Hilda’s alumna) is a quirky and comical piece that plays with the audience’s perceptions of the boundaries between dance and music. Grim’s Ditch is a work of polyinterpretable music theatre by composer Joel Baldwin (St Hilda’s) that explores melancholia, politics, artistic expression and meaning through the layering of multimedia, sound and physical motion. Joseph Currie (St Anne’s) investigates different kinds of time in movement, motivated by the structural difference of heartbeats and breaths, alongside ideas about gendered breath and the expressive apparatus behind screaming.

Duration: 2 hours with interval
