Well, press releases often go in for hyperbole, but in this case it's an understatement. They say, 'Four of the UK’s best contemporary dancers.....,' but in fact they are four of the UK's best dancers in any style. Do go and see them if you possibly can. Press Release
Four of the UK’s best contemporary dancers present the final London performance of Women’s Voices, Manic Lives
Snag Project are at Greenwich Dance Agency on Friday 7 June
Four of the UK's best-known dancers bring their quirky talents and outstanding abilities to Greenwich Dance Agency on Friday 7 June at 7.30pm. Snag Project presents Women's Voices: Manic Lives, a dance and music event that explores life, love.....and snags.
Snag Project are Joanne Fong, Catherine James, Sonja Peedo and Sarah Warsop whose combined credits include Rambert Dance Company, Siobhan Davies Dance Company, Arc and Jeremy James and Company.
Women’s Voices, Manic Lives is made up of five works - three solos, two duets - by company choreographers, Sarah Warsop and Joanne Fong. In Warsop’s Flap, she is joined on stage by award-winning guitarist Abigail James playing a commissioned score by Peter Wyer. Warsop’s Small Hours is a solo from the Rambert Dance Company repertoire. Originally created during a workshop season for Elizabeth Old, it has been restaged for Snag with Elizabeth Old recreating her original interpretations. Joanne Fong’s Allow Me has a commissioned soundscore by Luke Anthony.
Khalil Gibran's The Prophet was the starting point for the duets, Orange Gina and Sleep Talking. Warsop’s Orange Gina is danced to music by Nitin Sawhney and John Oswald while Fong’s Sleep Talking has a commissioned score, again by Luke Anthony.
As part of Women’s Voices, Manic Lives, the Snag Website features weekly video and text diaries of the choreographic and rehearsal process. Get the Snag background and talk to the artists at the Snag Obsessions Centre at www.snagproject.com
