Testing Ground is a platform for work in progress or newly developed experiments in dance. Testing Ground is supported by Theatre Bristol and Circomedia and creates an opportunity for artists to show new work as well as receive valuable feedback from industry peers and professionals.
Lumiere Digitale will present an experimental aerial dance work, using a human counterweight system that exploits a substantial size difference between two performers to dramatic effect. An experiment in physics, it combines the technical challenges this presents with the improvisational and narrative possibilities that it offers. A duet of opposites, dichotomies, and contradictions that explores what happens when two poles meet in the middle (or not): the hybrid, liminal spaces between equilibrium or collision in the vulnerability of vertical space.
Lumiere Digitale are currently experimenting with new vocabulary, concepts and possibilities as part of the creative process for their new show at the old courts
Please do come along and see our work;
Testing Ground takes place on Thursday 22 November at 7.30pm at the circomedia church, portland square, St Pauls, Bristol, BS2 8S
