Places of Non-Belonging
Three dancers are tied to bungee cords attached to the left of the stage and try, with slow movements, to traverse the stage, never reaching their destination.
Choreographed by Riccardo Buscarini
Dancers: Luke Antysz, Mira Kautto, Suzanne Thomas
Review by Libby Costello for ballet.co.uk :
"To focus on the positives Places of Non-belonging by Riccardo Buscarini (choreographer) and Henry Fry (designer) created the perfect partnership proving that less is definitely more. Three dances tried to transverse the stage but bound by tight bungee ropes the trio never made their destination. Buscarini showed maturity and intellect in his choice of movement, steering clear of manic spring led movement. Instead the dancers barely moved for the majority of the piece, their impetus coming from within rather than the ropes that restrained them."
