Dickson Mbi, Kirill Burlov, Gisele Edwards
The Coronet presents an evening of new dance pieces juxtaposing the distinctive styles of three extraordinary choreographers:
Dickson Mbi performs Duende: in his first self-choreographed solo piece Dickson draws on his diverse disciplinary background, spanning popping, funk and classical dance, to explore the concept of duende, an idea often associated with flamenco, in which the spirit life of the artist is made manifest.
S/he, a duet by Kirill Burlov, investigates the oscillations of power in intimate relationships, questioning how shifting and dismantled gender roles might affect the balance and imbalance, of power between lovers.
Award-winning aerialist Gisele Edwards performs Rasa: continuing her choreographic explorations of the spatiality of sound, Gisele here displays some of her beautiful rope-work in her first collaboration with a sitar player.
