Preview: Taking Flight, Corn Exchange, Newbury

Butcher also stars in the solo "Falling Up", where an "endless rope" on a winch allows her continually to fall and turn without having to climb. "It's as though I am caught in mid-flight, but falling," she says.

Gravity & Levity
By Donald Hutera for The Times


FOR nearly 20 years Lindsey Butcher has been honing her skills as dancer and aerialist. Capitalising on that fusion, her company Gravity & Levity has been launched with an ambitious programme of live performance and film that tours until June 25.

Taking Flight is a classy, unpretentiously high-concept evening. Although Butcher’s elegant strength is the focal point, she has roped in some fine collaborators.

Taking Flight
By Natalie Anglesey for The Stage


An aerial dance installation performance, conceived by Lindsey Butcher and performed by her newly-formed company, Gravity and Levity, received its world premiere at the Lowry before embarking on a nationwide tour.

Created in collaboration with six directors and choreographers, including Flick Fenando, Yael Flexer, Matilda Leyser, Mish Weaver and Fin Walker of Walker Dance Park Music, its format takes shape through three live pieces of aerial dance and three aerial dance films.

Taking Flight
by SANJOY ROY for the Guardian

Swing and suspension are natural qualities of aerial dance, but choreographer Fin Walker brings her punchier style to Why?, the evening's finale, performed outdoors. As Butcher and Lee Clayden hang against a towering black wall, you feel as if you're watching them from above rather than from the side.

High-wire act that's low on inspiration
by ISMENE BROWN for Daily Telegraph

Lindsey Butchers Taking Flight generated large expectations. Shown at the Royal Opera House, this collaboration between six choreographers, directors and film-makers offered a rare sight of a girl on a wire.
