The company is in development for a new work, Here we Are Amongst You.
Here We Are Amongst You is a new work devised by the 15 diverse members of the Rawcus Ensemble. It is a secular prayer for our times composed by multiple voices. An expression of longing and exuberance. A work that seeks to interrogate and illuminate questions around the place of faith, reverence, kindness, generosity, redemption and grace in this turbulent moment in time.
Here we Are Amongst You will premiere in 2022
Rawcus is currently working with choreographer Marc Brew ( Artistic Director Axis Oakland, USA) via Zoom in preparation for a Glass, a new work created by Marc with the company.
This work started in Oakland USA when the company traveled to work with Marc and Axis Dance . It was due to premiere in 2020. In 2021 we explore what it means to undertake an international collaboration remotely and will present the work in July.
Delving into dynamics of power, restriction, tenacity and ambition, this new work interrogates invisible edges, boundaries and barriers. Glass is an invitation to redefine success, limitations, and virtuosity.
Combining moments of vulnerability and humour, Glass is highly physical, sculptural, unexpected and tender.
