Rich Mix Theatre, Dance London: June 29th, 30thThursday, 21 June, 2012
Stand By Premiere, plus other work
In western society women are taught to be individual and independent. Dependence on other people is looked upon as weak. Same too with dependence on substances. Are these two categories of dependence are similarly devastating? When is independence destructive? Choreographer Maddy Wynne-Jones tackles these questions with the courage and innovation that has become her trademark.
Stand-By will be premiered in a triple bill celebrating the versatility, diversity, and momentum of the Tempered Body collective, presenting in addition two brand new works by TBDT dancers Claudia Palazzo and Holly Blakey.
Tempered Body Dance Theatre have been gaining recognition since their beginning in 2007. Founded by Canadian choreographer Maddy Wynne-Jones, the company has been Resident Company of Chisenhale Dance Space since 2009, and Associate Company of Rich Mix since April 2011
