Choreographer Gary Clarke said: ‘As creative artists we have instincts which generally, in dance making, we don't listen to. We tend to over think ideas and blur our vision with outside interferences and knowledge. LUSTRUM is designed to listen to these instincts and act upon them. Like an abstract painter such as Pollock or Bacon would do, but using bodies and movement as our canvas. The challenge is that we do it all together, as one, creating beautiful creative clashes and collisions. It’s a stressful but rewarding project. It is a true roller coaster and is not for the faint hearted! I am so pleased to be bringing it to Greenwich!’
Kat Bridge, Interim Artistic Director at Greenwich Dance added: ‘Gary Clarke’s Lustrum is a truly innovative, exciting way to create new work and a fantastic professional development opportunity for dance artists and choreographers. It has had great success in Liverpool, Leeds and Edinburgh already, and we are delighted that through our partnership with Trinity Laban, we are able to bring it to Greenwich for its London debut. Anything could happen, and we can’t wait to see the results!’
LUSTRUM was performed at the Greenwich Dance Agency in November 2013.
