CHARLES LINEHAN COMPANY (UK)
New Quartet and Happy Days


Sat 5 & Sun 6 November, 8pm
The Place: Robin Howard Dance Theatre
020 7387 0031
Tickets £5 - £15

Initially submerged in a wall of sound, New Quartet opens up into a distilled environment of movement, music and light in which simplicity and detail are perfectly balanced and integrated. Lighting Design is by Mikki Kunttu.

Happy Days, Charles Linehan Company's latest work is inspired by the music of composer Jim O'Rourke (Sonic Youth), whose conceptual piece of the same name defies every conventional listening expectation. The listener is drawn under the spell of the music, in which an acoustic guitar and electronic soundscape very gradually increase in intensity. The hypnotic effect is mirrored in Linehan's choreography.

‘Impressive, intelligent, thought-provoking choreography. Submerged in ambiguity, Charles Linehan's subtle, atmospheric dance thrives on implication, on the elusive emotional undercurrents of human interaction.’

Charles Linehan
By Donald Hutera for The Times

Charles Linehan is a thinking person’s choreographer. His work, understated and always sensitively crafted, is a stream of glancing but resonant encounters between dancers for whom playing out to the audience would be a cardinal sin. And yet because their dancing is so honest and revealing, we never feel excluded.
