      EVENT DETAILS
      Company Van Huynh: Dep

      Dep is the Vietnamese word for beautiful. With his latest dance work, the UK based choreographer Dam Van Huynh explores influences from his South East Asian heritage. In Vietnamese culture, death is also a form of rebirth. When a person dies, the family and community enact rituals that will enable the deceased to pass into another realm, a higher state of being. The work sees a shift in Van Huynh's movement language as it delves ever deeper into the nature of the human condition. The dancers in ?EP are nude for a purpose. Fragile and vulnerable, their nudity literally strips them bare. Disrobed, free of distraction, their movement begins at the point where the mind transcends the physical self. Amplified and tracked by Martyna Poznanska's numinous score, the movement in ?EP depicts a ritualistic and meditative trance with no beginning and no end. Please note this performance contains full frontal nudity.

      Cost: £12, concs £10
