Maiden Voyage Dance, has commissioned Scottish Choreographer Jack Webb to create ‘Each for Other’ a new dance trio for public space that explores our need for togetherness and community. The dance piece will launch at this year’s 20th anniversary Belfast Children’s Festival and will engage audiences as the performers encounter complications and find collective strength and possibility whilst physically harnessed to each other.
The new commission forms part of Maiden Voyage’s ‘Dance Exposed’ programme, which focuses on bringing short dance works into public spaces for new audiences to encounter high quality dance performance, and for dance fans to enjoy the latest creative production from the popular Dance Company.
Audiences will have several opportunities to catch ‘Each for Other’ during March with four performances during Belfast Children’s Festival Family weekend 10-11 March 2018, with further extract performances planned for The Market Place Theatre Armagh on Wednesday 14 March
All performances are free, and last between 5 and 15 minutes. A short 5-minute excerpt performance will take place on Saturday 10 March at 11.45am and 1.30pm, in Great Victoria Street Bus Station, Belfast. On Sunday 11 March there will be two full 15-minute performances at 2pm and 3.30pm in the Ulster Museum Foyer, Belfast. This will be followed by a short family movement workshop afterwards. The Sunday performances will be audio described. The Market Place Theatre Armagh will host a short 5-minute excerpt of ‘Each for Other’ on Wednesday 14 March at 6.45pm and 7.15pm.
