Event Details

This event will now take place on Saturday 20 March from 6pm and Sunday 21 March, from 2pm and 6pm. This is a FREE and unticketed event.

The Air Between Us is a captivating outdoor aerial dance event performed mid-air between trees while A Figure Exhales is a site-specific outdoor performance with considerable visual impact.

The Air Between Us is a dance work between two bodies in space, in perfect equilibrium, crossing boundaries of culture, creativity and play. Arriving at this place from diverse backgrounds and experiences, Chloe Loftus and Rodney Bell – who performs in his wheelchair – explore our innate capacity to exist in symbiotic harmony. Like solar systems circling around each other, magnetically pulled by each other’s energy, their partnership celebrates equality and connection.

Meditative and stylised, A Figure Exhales is a site specific outdoor performance with considerable visual impact by performance artist and choreographer Zahra Killeen-Chance.  The figures of these surreal performances appear to be both real and ghostly. Sheathed in beautiful, seamless knit shrouds that enable them to become liminal figures that are simultaneously seen and unseen, Killeen-Chance’s performers allow the audience to experience something of the ambiguous space between the everyday and the otherworldly.

A Figure Exhales and The Air Between Us are presented as a double bill.
