Chalk and Of Land And Tongue create an evening of startling and eloquent dance that situates the audience right at the heart of the action.
For his stark and poetic duet Chalk, Clinkard draws inspiration from the iconic cliffs of his hometown. He is joined on stage by composer James Keane who provides a live score.
Of Land And Tongue is a dance of odd sensations and unnameable experiences performed by an exceptional cast. An accumulation of untranslatable words from foreign cultures, are brought to life to compelling, and occasionally hilarious effect.
Clinkard’s brand new double bill delivers a truly visceral dance experience in an intimate setting, where live music and breathtaking dance rips across the floor right at the audience’s feet.
“Clinkard’s ability to draw together an integrated theatrical experience... shows a sure touch of class”DanceTabs (on Ordinary Courage)
