The Royal Festival Hall presents <big>ROS WARBY
Sunday 4 and Monday 5 May 2003 at 8pm
Purcell Room, SE1
One of Australia’s truly distinctive dancer-choreographers, Ros Warby, presents her programme of three solo works, one choreographed by herself and one each by Lucy Guerin and Deborah Hay, both of whom have been commissioned previously by Mikhail Barishnikov, at the Purcell Room on Sunday 4 and Monday 5 May 2003. With idiosyncratic lighting and hypnotic projections, courtesy of designer Margie Medlin, Solos is a diverse and mysterious evening, showcasing three very different performance and choreographic styles, which has been seen at the major Australian festivals and toured internationally.
Eve, choreographed by Warby, is a dance exposing the internal dialogues, short stories and multi-faceted layers existing at any one time in the experiences of female identity – of mother, daughter, lover, sister, wife. Dance and film imagery combine to remarkable effect in an ephemeral piece that showcases Warby’s ability to change tempo in the blink of an eye.
Living With Surfaces, choreographed by Australian Lucy Guerin, is a solo about getting comfortable in limited, physical worlds. Various surfaces that define human existence; skin, floors, walls etc are sometimes celebrated, sometimes deplored, in a quirky piece that sees Warby quite literally climbing the walls.
In American choreographer Deborah Hay’s rigorous work, Fire, Warby writhes, contorts and transforms herself as each movement becomes a discovery and the dancer foregoes assurances found in memory or desire.
