Jack Webb and Gary Clarke double bill.
Beta Wave Transport is a new work specifically created for Dance Base at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2011 by rising dance talent, Jack Webb. Beta Wave Transport is a powerful, visceral and extraordinary solo that scrambles between the jelly like mass of the subconscious mind to the destruction of the tamed man. It is a breeding ground for freedom of body, mind, instinct and ideas in a work that crosses borders between dance, performance art and that is layered with extraordinary physcial imagery, curioisty and emotional bravery.
'Jack Webb is a compellingly charismatic performer' the Herald
Bagofti delves deep into the bold, austere and highly expressive art work of iconic figurative painter Francis Bacon. Part dance, part sculpture, Bagofti is a mesmerising display of sheer physicality. Gary Clarke and acclaimed performer Gavin Coward create a dark and captivating world of beauty and the grotesque. Award-winning choreographer.
'One of the most exiting new talents in British contemporary dance'
