Theo Clinkard: Ordinary Courage
6 Dec 2012
‘We are defined by how well we rise after falling’
Renowned dancer, Theo Clinkard creates a rousing new group work that brims with highly charged and eloquent physicality.
Set to a haunting original score by Alan Stones, including live piano, Ordinary Courage follows a community in repair, harnessing the capacity for movement and touch to communicate when words are not enough. A stripped back
space, starkly lit by Zerlina Hughes, becomes the canvas for breathtaking performances.
Clinkard completes an outstanding six-strong cast drawn from the likes of Random Dance, Akram Khan, Richard Alston, Siobhan Davies, Sydney Dance Company and Australian Dance Theatre.
“When you have Theo Clinkard on stage, who wants to be distracted?” The Times
Made possible with the generous support of South East Dance, Trinity Laban, The Point, Pavilion Dance South West, Greenwich Dance,
Chichester University, Bath ICIA, Dance Art Foundation and Arts Council England.
