Under the pressure of sound and light iam follows a group of dancers as they discover the very nature of one another through the fabric of their own personal histories.  Intimate duets weave between each other probing for surfaces and space:  taking the audience on a journey through a world of fractured timelines charged with clarity and power. 

IAM follows six dancers as they discover the very nature of one another through the fabric of their own personal histories. Errol White Company presents this compelling new work of evocative sound and movement, creating a world, which celebrates the marks we leave on each other as we pass through life. Not only through their innovative dance moves is the story told but further portrayed through the costumes, as the deliberate creases evoke the traces of these interactions. Allowing the audience to experience a journey through a world of fractured timelines charged with clarity
and power.

 
With speed and eloquence the dancers push against tactile lighting and dynamic soundscapes of Gerald Tyler and Tiago Cerqueira. A 3-D sound and light
environment will be created working with sensors within the space to explore the sound and light construction in relation to space and time. This is simultaneous and consequent to the movement progression, refracting the body’s resonances and memories.

 

Press reviews for previous performances

Grace:


“Grace…12 minutes of sheer pleasure.White has a bewitching way of moving his body and this exquisite solo set to the haunting sounds of Canadian group A Silver Mt Zion was a high point not just of the evening, but of the year.”

Errol White Dance, Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh.
*** SCOTSMAN, published Monday 8th June 2009.

 
“White's own solo, Grace, explores identity and allows him to dance out with his hallmark turn of speed, lithe athleticism and split-second precision. Costuming, lighting, music had been carefully thought through: in all, a classy debut.”

I Came to See You:

“The duet, I Came to See You - performed by White and Davina Givan - has a raw honesty in its bones…When the two do connect, bodies nesting spoon-like and close, there's still an urge to be separate, the final reaching out of hands is electric with meaning.”
