The show begins with a projection at the back of the stage of the virtual performance of the piece which was performed in December 2020 over zoom. The dancers in the room come to life and dance in sync with themselves on screen, though this time the dancers in the room are standing in bedsheets, a visual representation of the restriction and feelings of being trapped.
Choreographer Karen Hill takes us on a journey we’ve all already been on but each in a different way. We follow the stages of the Covid-19 pandemic through lockdown, opening up, loss and love.
We journey through the first stages of lockdown, where for creatives in particular there was a feeling of fear, sadness and often being like a caged animal trying to escape which is shown well here in this piece.
