The Forecast

What’s it going to be like? It’s going to be epic. A dream-like solo, with opposing fronts sweeping across the shifting landscape of the gendered body. Later, a high chance of virtuosity, introspection, humour and tender becomings.

Amy Bell rides the blustery winds of aspiration and transformation blowing about our changing sense of self. Mercurial movement and text are immersed in a live digital soundscape by composer Jamie McCarthy, with animation from visual artist Hetain Patel. Weathering the storm, trying to read a forecast in constant flux, how will we know when we’ve arrived?

Watch this space; conditions fleeting.
