A Separation

If it crosses the line, if it goes too far, then it should do because it’s only by going too far that we know what the limits are. — William Drew

A Separation is a performance work by Colin, Simon and I. It was first presented at Lilian Baylis Studio, London, on Thursday 27 March 2014, as part of Eva Recacha’s Wild Card evening. Most recently it was performed as part of the Open House Festival at Dance House Lemesos in Limassol, Cyprus (22 November 2014), and at Festival Hate Neimenster, Luxembourg (1 September 2016).

Previously we’ve explored violence, care and the things that draw us together and unite us. In this project we focused on what separation might be in collaboration.

We had a first development of A Separation at Choreodrome at The Place in the summer of 2013. We then continued working on the project at Trinity Laban, Roehampton Dance, and around cafes in London.
