Acclaimed Scottish choreographer Jack Webb and a company of three exceptional dancers confront and explore the dramatic notion of end points, the end of the world, the end of life as we know it, the end of good, bad and all in between. Extraordinary choreographic style and powerful soundscapes combine for a startlingly thoughtful and compelling experience that looks our very existence straight in the eye.
THE END is a Tramway and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art co-production and is supported by Creative Scotland, Dance Base, City Moves Dance Agency and the contributors to an Indiegogo crowd fund campaign.
Over the past decade WEBB has established a bold and distinctive artistic voice. His work is strongly routed in dance, improvisation and sometimes crosses over into performance art. It is concerned with the exploration of transformation and deconstruction of the body, states of consciousness, heightened emotional states and distortion of the body, objects, costume and surroundings. It is often influenced by and attempts to connect to the goings on in nature and in society, human and animal behaviours and the similarities between the two as well as zooming in on and confronting inner and outer emotional and physical landscapes and the performer and audience.
Part of BALTIC Live, a series of interdisciplinary performances introducing a new live art and experimental dance programme at BALTIC.
