Abstract

Double Vision is the first live collaborative dance project between Liz Aggiss and Charlotte Vincent, Artistic Director of Sheffield based Vincent Dance Theatre. Working in simple measures, on equal terms and with a lightness of touch, Liz Aggiss and Charlotte Vincent explore unknown strategies to create a dance to be seen and heard. Despite their differing aesthetic and physical practice, what binds these two performers is their search for a new language. Exposing the relationship between director and performer, between conceptual and physical simplicity, between seriousness and humour, the results are a female Morecambe and Wise doing a bit of Beckett. Double Vision acknowledges the desire by a couple of old dogs to share some new tricks in a modified performance kennel. This research project has been support by University of Brighton, Basement Brighton, Nightingale Theatre Brighton and Arnolfini Bristol.
