WHERE THE LIGHT FALLS by EyeKnee Coordination
A new evening length work for four dancers, which merges the mediums of dance, video and live vocals to explore a state of waiting and anticipation; peeking into a surreal world of memories and daydream, embracing both the beautiful, bizarre and the melancholic.
WITH: Sarah Cameron, Kevin Ho, Uta Takemura and Einy Åm (live),
and Oren Barnoy, Corinne Cappelletti, Cristina Jasen and Run Shayo (video).
VIDEO ARTISTS: Run Shayo and Tyler Sparks
"One of the best works of dance that I've seen of late that doesn't just use interdisciplinary elements, but actually fuses them into a new form."
Kevin Doyle, Artistic Director, Sponsored by Nobody
