‘Ordinary Grief’ R&D cont’d.

We’re excited to be heading back into R&D for ‘Ordinary Grief’ supported by Arts Council England.

We’ll spend week 1 at The Point, Eastleigh (where we’re chuffed to bits to announce that we’ve joined the cohort of HOME artists) before moving onto to offer ‘work in progress’ showings in partnership with Fabrica Gallery and South East Dance.

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.
