Plague of Doubt
Contemporary Dance | Music
Plague of doubt is a 20 minutre contemporary dance performance made for the Messums Wiltshire dance festival 4x20. The concept of the lies in the plague. The music aims to project the feeling of a timeless dystopian world through dream-like and distant wavering tones that interweave amongst dark rumbling beats. The performance cycles with fluctuating levels of energy like a noise signal, transitioning seamlessly between minimalist bass thuds to quivering bowed strings, sharing the stage with four dancers embodying illness through playful and thought provoking movements.
