10,000 Miles presented by QL2 Dance

Performed by Quantum Leap and the National Youth Dance Company of Scotland

Scottish and Australian youth contemporary dance: complex, exciting, real.  Young Glaswegian dancers have travelled 10,000 miles to collaborate and create with Canberra’s Quantum Leap youth dance ensemble. Ten Thousand Miles is a short triple bill of contemporary dance, with two youth dance companies from very different places coming together to forge meaningful contemporary dance. Australian choreographer Sara Black has created Act of Contact with QL2 in Canberra — “a physical exploration into how our kinetic energies transfer from one to another, creating new layers of information.”  Anna Kenrick is creating Imprinted with NYDCS, with an original score by Scottish composer David Paul Jones — “a highly physical, daring and complex work.”  And under the joint direction of Ruth Osborne and Anna Kenrick, the two groups create  Landing Patterns: “when we come together, we negotiate new patterns of thought, of action, of emotion, of expression.”  A short Q&A with the cast and choreographers, in the theatre, follows the performance.

Performance duration 50 minutes, plus a free 15 minutes Q&A with the companies after the performance.
