About this Event

Spirit Compass: Where there is movement there is change is a new live dance installation from renowned dance artist and choreographer Lucy Suggate.

As we all buckle under the weight of the collapsing system, Spirit Compass searches for a remedy. Can we slip through the cracks and reintegrate, repurpose and reorganise, in order to become more-than-human?

Featuring a live percussion score, Spirit Compass is an island, a temple of sorts, where a tidal meditation of movement responds to the increasing crisis and complexity of the 21st century.

Join us, drop in and stay as long as you like. Spirit Compass is an antidote to over-complicated, never-ending bureaucracy, in which movement itself offers relief from the sedentary environments and technologies that are submerging us.

Commissioned by CONTINUOUS, a partnership between BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and Siobhan Davies Dance, London.

Supported using public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England, by John Ellerman Foundation and by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.

With thanks to Cove Park, Dance Base, Harlequin Floors, Leeds Dance Partnership Fellowship, Livingstonepillow.com, Yorkshire Dance, and Wainsgate Dances.
