Lisa Simpson and Susan Kempster - Being Human

This event has passed

Liverpool-based choreographer Lisa Simpson creates an emotionally-charged duet for bodies very different from her own. Using her unique choreographic practice and told through expressive physical dance by Freya Davis and Nathan Keenoo, Being Human is an exploration into connection, isolation, self-sufficiency and dependency. A contemplation of sharing and conflicting experiences.

In Susan Kempster’s work, the choreographer and William (JJ) James weave in and out of close proximity with each other. Are they one or two people? Who is who?

With over 30 years difference in age between them, the choreographer explores with tenderness how different bodies express age and memory and challenge what we read into appearances.
