double pendulum (2017)

Choreography by Helen Cox
Performed by Helen Cox and Andrew Oliver
Lighting Design by Ric Mountjoy & Lucy Hansom
Music by Floating Points & Loscil

The motion of a single pendulum is wholly predictable, but when another pendulum is connected the movement becomes complex and uncertain. Acting as a metaphor for the interdependent relationships we have with those people close in our lives, we find that the stronger the connection, the more complex it becomes. In double pendulum we see two people push, pull, flourish and falter, but never stop.

‘double pendulum is low-key but beautifully crafted’ – Sanjoy Roy

‘It is one of the few works I have seen that stands on its own choreographic merits without any need for notes or explanations.’ – Nicholas Minns, Writing About Dance

Reflect on a time in your life when you were in a period of transition. It is sometimes said that this space in between is the most creative, but also the most vulnerable. Using the dancing body, I move through this space; deconstructing routines, and listening to the infinite possibilities of what lies between.

the agency of her movement is neither inside nor outside her; she simply elongates and stretches her sinuous, smooth gestures around herself in circular patterns that have no end.‘  – Nicholas Minns, Writing About Dance
