Emily Alden

Effete (2015 & 2016)
Collaboration with dancers & Sophy Smith (Motionhouse)

A duet about power play, risk & trust. A female dancer tests the limits of her parter as she daringly falls, flies, & runs around the space with her eyes closed. An edge of your seat journey through beautiful & brutal choreography echoing the complexities and tenderness of a relationship. 

Created with dancers Grace Sellwood, Robert Mennear, Emily Alden (festival version) & Kuldip Singh-Barmi.
Funded by Arts Council England, supported by Hall for Cornwall & AMATA, Falmouth University.

Performed at Falmouth University, Bath Spa University, On the Wire (multi-art platform, Falmouth) & a regional tour alongside work by Yael Flexer & Simon Birch.
