The fascinating, intricate world of DNA is placed under the microscope in Phoenix Artistic Director Sharon Watson’s Repetition of Change
. Set to a specially commissioned score by renowned composer Kenneth Hesketh and performed by members of contemporary music ensemble Psappha
, this engaging piece uses volatile, impulsive and often sensual dance to unravel the complexities of our genetic code. The piece will be touring the UK throughout 2013 as part of Phoenix’s Particle Velocity
Repetition of Change
is supported by the RPS Drummond Fund
which commissions new music for dance.
For performances in Leeds and London members of acclaimed contemporary music ensemble Psappha will be performing the score live, whilst at all other venues the piece will be performed to a specially made recording by the ensemble.
