Letter To My Father / Crush: Appetite Dance Productions

Appetite Dance Productions present a powerful and beautiful double bill of contemporary dance. With hypnotically intricate body poetry, high energy pirouettes and complex rhythmic body movement, choreographer and artistic director Apple Yang merges techniques from Chinese dance, martial arts and calligraphy to symbolise the turbulent meeting between East and West.

Letter To My Father - Shaped through experiences as a Chinese woman living in contemporary Britain, Apple explores her relationship with her loving, ambitious and authoritarian father through its challenges and joy into the woman she has become. Told through powerful and beautiful dance we discover what it means to be a Chinese woman shackled by the weight of tradition and expectation.

Crush - Crush explores the forbidden fruit of infidelity, exploring the complex human behaviour driven by love and lust. Share the thrill, excitement and anticipation of that next encounter and plunge into the depths to confront the inner conflicts. The piece dissects the excitement, motives, risks and consequences of infidelity in a breathless and passionate display of thrilling dance.

This event is free for Gala Friends.
