Following the success and critical acclaim for its 2010 production, 5 SOLDIERS, Birmingham based and nationally renowned Rosie Kay Dance Company is thrilled to announce its brand new production for 2012. There is Hope is a hard-hitting, contemporary dance piece exploring the relationship between faith and the body.
There is Hope fuses Kay’s talent for blending timely and personal stories with edgy and contemporary choreography. Beginning in the real world, but rapidly descending into hell, followed by purgatory before finally reaching a euphoric state in heaven – There is Hope explores ancient ritual and contemporary religion.
Both challenging and thought-provoking, this new piece of Kay’s, one of the UK’s fastest rising choreographic talent, embraces her multi-disciplinary style of choreography, diverse collaborations and eclectic mix of visual media. Featuring five dancers and three musicians – performing on a visually arresting set – There is Hope weaves elements of black comedy, live music, film, song, and occasional nudity to deliver its message of hope and redemption.
The musical accompaniment is especially impressive.
There is Hope is on at DanceXchange, Birmingham this evening at 8pm following a successful opening night last night. Tickets are still available for tonights performance priced £12/£9.
