Summit Dance Theatre and choreographer Alison Curtis-Jones

Two works by Rudolf Laban given a contemporary twist and new lease of life. Drawing on Laban’s principles and archeo-choreological research, Curtis-Jones re-imagines Laban’s work to create a new living archive. Drumstick, the rhythm of the body made audible, sees Summit dancers determine rhythmic phrasing of movement live on stage with musicians composing the sound score real time, in response to what they see. The second work, Nacht, is a political satire depicting the underbelly of Berlin’s Weimar period and the love of dollars, deceit and depravity.
