Join us in The Dance Space for one of four performances during Brighton's festival season in May, to help us test our new building before we open to the public in July.

Six wooden, door-sized frames, balanced upright in a row - waiting to fall like dominoes. Two people defiantly occupy this precarious space, performing a suspenseful balancing act. Skin on wood, they strain against the frames, straddling them like lovers. Joints creaking, they slowly queer the timber, becoming slow-moving, part-human-part-frame hybrids.

In a kaleidoscope of light, TIMBER is about reclaiming risky spaces, subverting limitation, and finding space to flourish within precarious situations. This slowly unfurling work explores the simmering power of silence, stillness, and gradual change, whilst playfully testing people’s attitudes toward risk and uncertainty.

Sensitivity warning: This performance contains loud, sudden noises and bright, pulsating lights.

Presented by South East Dance. Supported by The Place, DanceXchange, Arts Council England, Artsadmin's BANNER Award 2017 - 2018, Goldsmiths College, Take Art, Pavilion Dance South West, Taunton Pride, Somerset Lesbian Network, Diversity Trust and Chard WATCH.

In partnership with Brighton Festival.
