THE DATE

project created by Rhiannon Faith:dancingtheatre, project category Dance

THE DATE

THE DATE... an experiment, a cafe setting, a table used as a backdrop for projected video through which parts of the narrative unfolds, and the phenomema of Love in the present is tested. Two dancers weave their way through a non-linear story, blending text and physical contact work to an emotive and current soundtrack, as a smutty commentator injects humour and outrageous behaviour.

After several years of creating dance performance with live music, often for immersive cross-arts performance events, and with large ensembles, RhiannonFaith:dancingtheatre company is developing an easy-to-tour duet.

Experiment: Maddy and Nathan are dancers within the company. They have in this time hooked up on various occasions. They have a formidable chemistry when they dance together. They have never dated. For 5 days at the same time each day Maddy and Nathan meet at an Eastend cafe for a date.

They use their phones to film each other during each date. They are also filmed by a commentator, who provides tasks, challenges and activities. After each date we take the footage to the studio and begin to make work based on their embodied experiences. We question the behaviour and seek to find moments where phenomana happens, where feelings for one another change and where human connection is exposed.

The findings and documented footage will be part of the final piece.

The companies work speaks to a large audience, beyond dance enthusiasts.
