Fold and Stretch, 2016

24 minute performance with 3 dancers, 180kg dough

Developed with bread baker Martha Brown and Choreographer Lucy Suggate over the course of a month investigating the physicality of dough and its relationship to the body, movement and dance. Working with their own body weight in dead dough, the performers carry out a series of movements inspired by how the body moves when we make bread, the dough becomes more yeasty and alive through contact with the performers bodies and their surroundings.

Commissioned by Site Gallery, Sheffield.

Performed by: Kirsty Arnold, Hannah Buckley and Lucy Suggate
