‘LUNCH ON THE FLY’ – VERTICAL DANCE COMES TO PONTIO
Fancy trying something different in 2020? This is a fun session in which you can have a go at vertical dance. Starting with an easy warm up, you will then try to stand on and jump off a vertical floor using waist harnesses. You will be guided through some simple positions, and then you will fly!
Vertical dance is an exciting, emerging form of dance that typically uses rock climbing equipment (ropes, harnesses and abseil devices) to suspend dancers off the ground on a range of vertical surfaces. It takes place in a variety of locations, from theatres and their foyers to the outside of buildings and rock faces. Vertical Dance Kate Lawrence (VDKL) are one of a limited, but growing number of companies worldwide specialising in this new dance genre.
Artistic Director, Kate Lawrence has 30 years experience as a dance artist and 15 years specialising in Vertical Dance. The company was constituted in December 2014 for the promotion of arts activities and builds on Kate’s collaboration with rigger Simon Edwards.
