Dance which leaves you ‘effervescent with compassion and aching for a hug‘ The Stage
bgroup, directed by Jerwood award winning choreographer Ben Wright, return to ICIA with a brand new show Just As We Are on Sat 23 March, 7.30pm
Co-commisioned by ICIA, Just As We Are is a trilogy that begins at walking pace, segueways into a passionate duet and culminates in a wild disco-finale. It’s set to a new sound score by Wright’s long-time collaborator Alan Stones and is a wonderful opportunity to experience contemporary dance in all its guises. It is a tribute to an act of uncertainty, an invitation to the audience to consider the level of its participation…how will you share the moment?
Ben Wright is joined by an exceptional team of collaborators – five performers, lighting designer Guy Hoare, visual artist and photographer Mark Vessey.
Ben Wright is an internationally commissioned artist whose work moves between extremes sometimes dark and mysterious, sometimes funny and flippant. His extensive choreographic work has been performed at The Metropolitan Opera New York, in London’s West End and at the ICIA Arts Theatre. No matter the size of venue, Ben’ s passion for creating extraordinary experiences and curious yet accessible work is the driving force behind bgroup’s growing popularity and success.
