Outdoor Shows Red Shoes - Upswing
Available for touring in 2017 – 18
RED SHOES takes inspiration from the Hans Christian Andersen tale turning it into a rich piece of visual storytelling following two girls as they get lost in a magical landscape, a forest where they stray from the path, lose themselves but ultimately find rescue in each others strength. Red Shoes blends the circus techniques of Chinese pole with dance to create a playful outdoor dance work on a set designed to create an island of colour in the centre of the audience.
An early version of RED SHOES was created with disabled artist Rowena Deletant and was shown as a very initial work in progress under the title ‘From Here’ with a presentation at the Liberty Festival in September 2010.
Commissioned in 2012 by Without Walls and Watch this Space festival
