Citymoves & Aberdeen Performing Arts presents DanceLive 2016
DanceLive has commissioned London-based choreographer Stephen Pelton to re-author his 1998 solo The Hurdy-gurdy Man, using its original choreography as source material to create a new work for a new dancer. All of the movement in The Hurdy-gurdy Man was originally taken from documentary footage of Adolf Hitler.
The re-authored dance, if you want to see me once more, is set to rhapsodic music by Gavin Bryars and Sergei Rachmaninoff and includes a black and white film created by Mat Hale.
Glasgow-based dancer Freya Jeffs, will perform the new work alongside Pelton performing The Hurdy-gurdy Man for the first time in fifteen years.
This project has been made possible thanks to Citymoves Dance Agency, Bodysurf Scotland and plan B. The entire project has been shaped under the dramaturgy of Struan Leslie.
