STUDENTS from as far apart as Gdansk in Poland to East Kilbride in the west of Scotland are working together to produce a dynamic evening of dance at The Space at Dundee College.
A total of 19 students on the BA dance degree course are each choreographing a piece to be performed by their classmates – so everyone is both creating and dancing in Precipieces which runs on Thursday and Friday, October 6 and 7.
Polish student Dagmara Jerzak is using the film music of fellow countryman, and Oscar winner, Jan A P Kaczmarek, for her piece, while Sheffield-born student Lucy Haighton has incorporated the music of Phoenix, a French indie rock band for her fiery duet, a mix of slow movement and pacey steps, which explores the theme of internal fear.
Meanwhile, Kerry Docherty, of East Kilbride, is using her experiences of living in Dubai to write a piece which explores the role of women in Arabic countries which will be danced by three people.
Southampton girl Melanie Forbes-Broomes has also written a dance for three people.
While her classmates all seemed to be looking east for inspiration, Mel, who produced and directed a highly successful dance show at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer, looked west by incorporating the music of Detroit house and techno producer Omar-S into Precipieces.
This is a free event, tickets will be available from 6.45pm on the night on a first-come-first-served basis; The bar at the Space is open from 7pm with curtain-up at 7.30pm.
