Brocade is choreographer Roberta Jean's poetic response to historical and contemporary notions of craft and physical work. As the audience sit aside a traverse performance space, bodies skip and skim past. Across the stage, movement and sound are propelled along a catwalk, sewn together by the rhythmic cadence of beats and jumps. Sonic textures resonate with the presence of the women forging alliances. Somewhere between a procession and a concert, the work aims to recreate the precision, strength and delicacy of an intricate piece of lace. Created in collaboration with, and performed by, an ensemble of female dancers, the work also features vocals by Jean and live music by violinist Angharad Davies.
