Brighton Dome Concert Hall, Church Street, Brighton BN1 1UE
Thu 25 May
Part One: every 20 minutes between 5pm – 7pm
Part Two: 8pm
‘Clinkard’s choreography has an unforced, unhurried quality…intimate, human-scale and charged with joy’
Brighton-based choreographer and designer, Theo Clinkard follows his recent commissions for Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch and Danza Contemporanea de Cuba with This Bright Field, a new work for his company, to premiere as part of Brighton Festival 2017.
Clinkard and his exceptional company of twelve international dancers have crafted an event in two parts that focuses the subjective and objective gaze within private and public spaces. Audience and performers share the stage for a captivating and intimate mobile installation before the second part presents a dynamic landscape of emboldened collective energy.
Clinkard’s striking designs, live music by acclaimed composer James Keane and lighting by renowned designer Guy Hoare, ensure that This Bright Field is a site for memorable encounters and an empowered experience of togetherness.
Over the last five years, Theo Clinkard has built an international reputation for creating affecting and visually arresting work, including the recent large-scale commission The Listening Room, created in Havana for twenty dancers at Danza Contemporanea de Cuba and performed at Brighton Dome in March. We are thrilled to welcome Theo Clinkard to the family of Associate Artists here at Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival.
