The original conservatoire dance company, showcases the next generation of contemporary dance performers in a triple bill at Stamford Arts Centre.

Transitions Dance Company will showcase 12 students from Trinity Laban, who will perform three brand new pieces from choreographers Dog Kennel Hill Project, Theo Clinkard and Ederson Rodrigues Xavier.

‘Fieldwork’ from performance and research collective Dog Kennel Hill Project explores how, as a newly formed company, the dancers locate themselves now and in relation to their past. Through a deconstructed series of arrivals and departures and a language of stumbles, false starts, surges and going round in circles, Fieldwork asks “when do we truly arrive anywhere?”

‘My dance, your touch’ draws upon research that outlines how physical touch affects our behavioural, cultural, emotional and biological development. Through memories, connections and music the movements of the piece are each crafted by the touch of another.

‘12’ is a physically demanding piece, following internal impulses or external attraction to capture the dancers’ attention. Incorporating a specially created score composed by Trinity Laban student Ben Pearson, the piece develops bonds formed through dynamic and sensitive partnering, solitary movements, group passages and intricate physical puzzles.
