Helena started Majesty dancing about royalty, reclamation and sequins. Her posh voice made her defensive and her grandfather's involvement in the 'colonial service' made her retreat. She now endeavors to look at the weight and value of ancestral shame. Her dances might be awkward and clunky but she is scraping at the layers and layers of shit underneath.

A man dances in the space, a blur of rosy tissue and liquid mass sliding over shifting ground. Threads of whipped candy and shining flesh bounce and spin in the artificial luminance. A face of silver and pink, eyes bright, scanning the trembling edge of the circle for signs of joy and reconnection.

 Together we worked over the course of a year to refine and redefine how we could place an exploration of sexuality and
sex and fragility in a room with an audience without making it all about c*ck.

What resulted was a 60 minute performance celebration; 
an open look at ideas of sexual autonomy, identity and fragility and
an attempt to rediscover the pleasure of skin and bone in a live space.

Backed by a pumping playlist of dance floor anthems, the show is both joyous and painful as we witness one man’s struggle with love, lust and loss. Nothing but thought-provoking, and always downright sexy.

Loosely based around Seaford Beach on the south coast of England, In Good Company was primarily concerned with a very personal experience of the landscape. Anonymous figures seen in the distance on rainy days on the pebble stone beach and a great, ominous statue of a commerant bird which sits in the middle of the water.

Gravity shapes us. From birth to death, what bodies can do is bound by what they weigh. Things fall, softly or heavily, constantly or all at once. Some things are too heavy to carry, or to lift. Some things carry us.

From early on on the process it became clear that Loaded required an organic almost raw aesthetic. The challenge for light within the piece was to develop a strong visual arc that wasn’t too contrived yet still supported the emotional intensity.

Loaded is currently in a period of Research and Development,
with plans to tour in 2016, read more here
