The Forecast preview | Amy Bell

What happens when opposing fronts sweep across the shifting landscape of the gendered body?
Can we intervene in newly forming identities?
Or must we surrender to their unpredictability?

“Comical and bizarrely fetching”
Josephine Leask, The Independent
(‘That Was The Time I Stopped’ with Valentina Golfieri)

Amy Bell dances and talks her way through this witty and dream-like solo performance, riding the blustery winds of aspiration; all the while hoping her umbrella doesn’t get turned inside out.

Amy tackles the all too human longings and frustrations of transformation whilst trying to read the forecast; wondering how we will know when we’ve arrived.

Immersed in a live digital soundscape by composer Jamie McCarthy with dramaturgy and animation from visual artist Hetain Patel.
