After a few too many turkey sandwiches, it was back to work in January with a bump.. I spent two weeks working with Maria Nilsson Waller on her Antartic/desert inspired piece 'Last Land' which we showed as part of New Movements at Dance House last Friday. Great to get us back into the swing of things!
This week I'm in the studio working on a new solo piece in collaboration with composer Benedict Schlepper-Connolly. Benedict is making a new large-scale opera work for solo dance and film. The piece doesn't premiere until August so it's early days yet, but so far things have been interesting and I think it's going to be a great piece of work.
I was delighted to find out that both Bird with Boy and Fast Portraits, two pieces I was involved in last year, were listed as part of the Sunday Times Best of 2011, alongside the Royal Ballet, Merce Cunningham and Sylvie Guillem... not bad company I would say!
