BEAT started from questioning what it means to be part of a generation that was brought up with the promise of endless possibilities.
It has ended up as a celebration of the fatigue, pain and uncertainty of deciding day by day – moment by moment – who we are.
This is the London Premiere.
"The work is smart in its seeming simplicity, yet radical in its complex choreography and seriously playful relationship with the viewer. We’re watching a dancer who is dancing like everyone is watching. She’s going to show us every move she knows, every facet of her personality, and she’ll not let us blink til the music stops.” - Matt Burman, Artistic Director, Cambridge Junction
