Wed 14 Mar 2018, Stamford Theatre dance
A thought provoking full-length dance production
ARTISTIC DIRECTORS: GAIL AND IAN PARMEL
CHOREOGRAPHERS: JOSÉ AGUDO & ACE DANCE AND MUSIC
At a time when more and more people across the world find themselves having to leave their own lands, ideas of home and belonging are changing. ACE have reunited with choreographer José Agudo to make an extraordinary dance piece. TEN continues the legacy of A Thousand Shepherds, combining contemporary dance with an essence of Flamenco, Kathak and Martial Arts with ACE¹s inimitable Afro-fusion style. Full of intense physical power and human fragility, TEN explores the concepts of moving away and leaving, looking at how and why people choose unimagined destinies over the lives they¹d always thought they¹d live. Inspired by global migration, TEN is a visceral and exhilarating dance production centred around the relationship between two brothers.
A carefully chosen creative team brings together diverse experiences, worldly artistic vision and shared values. In the same collaborative vein, music composition by Giuliano Modarelli layers emotive tribal vocals with evocative melodies into a dynamic soundscape created in collaboration with Beautiful Noise (Vincenzo Lamagna).
