Melting Down for Rosemary Lee

This year I'm taking part in Rosemary Lee's Melt Down, included in the Dance Umbrella 2012 programme and which will be performed in Granary Square, Kings Cross, London, on Sun 7, Sat 13 & Sun 14 October.

Originally commissioned for Dance Umbrella 2011, where the piece was performed around a square in Bloomsbury, it has now been reworked suit the busier and more urban location at the back of the station.

Showing you a picture of us rehearsing might be giving too much of the game away, so I've included the image above, where a garment was used as a prop in a warm up exercise lead by our rehearsal master Luke Birch before doing an actual run through of the Melt Down.  To me the image says something fundamental about the piece, and all things for that matter - we are all subject to the one inescapable force, and that is gravity.
