Matthew Rawcliffe: The Sun Rose

11 October 2019 | 6:30pm - 7:00pm | Hope Street Suitcases | FREE

A duet between two female dancers – a celebration of homecoming, fantasy and queer intimacy. Set to a soundtrack across Roberta Flack’s career, it follows our turbulent but immovable place within the cosmos. The work focuses on drawing an accessible narrative between the two women, reflecting the ever-changing nature of our interactions and relationships: as children, lovers, colleagues, teachers, artists and acquaintances. It is as fleeting as a late shift knowing glance across checkout counters and as cherished as a goodbye kiss.

Created by Matthew Rawcliffe, a finalist on BBC Young Dancer of the Year 2019, and currently performing in Matthew Bourne’s touring production of Romeo and Juliet.

This performance takes place at the Hope Street Suitcases.
