ELIOT SMITH DANCE RETURNS THROUGH MOVING PICTURES
Newcastle Peoples Theatre
Monday 9th May 2016
Two North East-born based artists have collaborated together and are ready to dazzle us with a breath-taking performance and array of beautiful drawings.
Bernadette Koranteng presents her collection of drawings made in collaboration with contemporary dance group the Eliot Smith Company. These mixed-media pieces are worked from numerous on-the-spot quick sketches done over several months.
Bernadette says, "The human form has always been my source of inspiration and continues to provide a vehicle for expressing personal ideas and feelings"
The artist's intention is to convey not only the energy, movement and physicality of the ESC dancers but also the emotional content of their work.
However, you may want to arrive early to the preview on Monday 9th May at 6pm to see Eliot Smith Company perform 'SPACE' a new work created for the company by International Choreographer Maggie Boogaart. This performance is free to all.
And don't worry, this is not the last chance to see ESC perform. Later this month, Eliot Smith will collaborate with Lorenzo Pagano (soloist dancer of The Martha Graham Dance Company) from New York to choreograph a new-solo-work on Eliot himself - supported by there most recent successful Kickstarter campaign.

Moving Pictures exhibition will run from the 9th - 29th May at People's Theatre Gallery in Heaton, Newcastle upon Tyne.
