Ice Away – Cold Hawaii
Friday 29 September
Venue: Mill of Pappas, Ballet Stage
So she retreats. She explores the vast emptiness, the territory of pleasure and the realm of silence after something breaking. Like a heartbreak that builds up, only to break down again, she creates a character that breathes, rises and disappears. Through movement and sound, words and songs she negotiates between harsh realities and the soft worlds of her imagination.
Cold Hawaii is a solo that can be thought of as an esoteric novel where fiction becomes the map to reimagine reality. It is a paradox and a myth seeking to confront the desire to be exposed and be private, to be shy and be too much, to be wild and be serene. It is a piece full of heartbreak, disappointment and rejection.
