Fertile Ground: Myths and Dreams

May 6 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

£14.00
Fertile Ground Myths and Dreams Gosforth Civic Theatre Newcastle

Fertile Ground returns to Gosforth Civic Theatre with Myths & Dreams – an ambitious and innovative programme created by four choreographers. The Company’s new season combines dance, film and digital sculpture in an imaginative evening performed by the cast of top North East emerging professional dancers.

Fertile Ground’s Artistic Co-Director Malgorzata Dzierzon brings to the stage her new dance film Somnium. At the time of extended confinement during the pandemic, many of us have found ourselves sleeping and dreaming more. Somnium wants to capture and express our dreams, memories, anxieties and desires at this time of change.

Next in the programme is Plubel, by rising European choreographers Fabritia D’Intino and Clémentine Vanlerberghe. A finalist in Boris Charmatz’s Danse Élargie competition and performed at Sadler’s Wells in 2019, Plubel is a hypnotic journey of imitation that questions how the female figure is represented in dance.

Closing the bill is Labyrinth, a cross-disciplinary work by Fertile Ground Artistic Co-Director Renaud Wiser, freely inspired by the myth of the Minotaur. In contrast with the classical narrative, in Labyrinth the Minotaur is portrayed as a symbol of hybridity representing the complexities of modern times. During their creative process, the dancers were immersed in a virtual environment created by sculptor Marie Lelouche and develop choreography in response to her sculptures. On stage, the performers’ movement reveals this virtual maze brought to life by projections and a haunting sound design.
