When dance artist Jo Lloyd was young, she would pretend to interview famous people she’d like to meet. OVERTURE is an extension of that, a dance that considers the unrequited, the unattainable and our attempts to connect with particular beings of obsession. Lloyd’s choreography moves gloriously on the precipices of the possible and unthinkable. Creating shared fictions, OVERTURE’s dancers reconstruct and invoke lost heroes in order to play out impossible scenarios. They shake, run, halt, throw limbs and memories out through the ends of their fingers, as they cross, meet, entwine and recoil.
Dance fans are being offered a whole new way to experience OVERTURE. After wowing audiences and critics alike with the live version of this dance work in August, Lloyd returns to Arts House bringing the show to life onscreen. Join her as she introduces these special screenings of a dance about permission and the unattainable.
Presented by Arts House as part of Dance Massive 2019.
