Phew! We recently finished our R&D for ‘Ordinary Grief’ supported by Arts Council England.
We spent week 1 at The Point, Eastleigh (where we’re chuffed to bits to announce that we’ve joined the cohort of HOME artists) followed by a ‘work in progress’ sharing in partnership with Fabrica Gallery and South East Dance.
Directed by Fin Walker, with writing by Ed Harris and with performers Ruth Janssen, Lee Clayden and Lindsey Butcher, ‘Ordinary Grief’ explores the human condition of loss and aims to bring focus and elicit conversation around this rarely discussed topic offering a visceral experience that legitimises the emotional one.
Watch this space for updates on how this exciting project will develop.Read More

Gravity & Levity was launched in 2003 by Artistic Director, Lindsey Butcher, to explore the creative and expressive potential in applying a dance aesthetic to aerial suspension techniques, through artistic development, teaching and live productions.
G&L exists to develop and maximise the creative potential of artists and the audience imagination.
We strive to create and present innovative aerial dance that redefines what and where a dance floor can be both for an audience and for ourselves. We present work that is accessible, relevant and offers an alternative perspective on traditional aesthetics in both dance and circus.
