This is Lawrence Dance Academys second time at the Fringe, having previously performed Town in 2003.
The company consists of fifteen dancers, one male and fourteen female. They perform a number of loosely differentiated movements, such as Work Lines, Dream Time, and Mothers, Children, Circles. Each movement is performed by groups of three, four or more dancers or, in some cases, the entire company.
Unlike some contemporary dance performances, the dancing is graceful and fluid and a pleasure to watch. The audience is captivated from the first movement, Boots Dragging, where the entire company is at the back of the stage and then three dancers at a time peel off in well-choreographed routines.
Most of the performance takes place to recordings of Silk Road Journeys Beyond the Horizon, Appalachian Journey and Amandia! A Revolution In Four-Part Harmony. However, the music for one movement, Lullaby, is a live performance of Slumber My Darling by Stephen Foster, beautifully played by Clare Curran, Samantha Greiff and JinHwa Lee.
This is an excellent production, which anyone who appreciates modern dance would enjoy.
