Heather Walrond - The Rising
Heather Walrond Company present
The Rising is an empowering, highly charged evening of dance and live music. The show is inspired by Fijian dance and culture from Heather's time working in Fiji with Vou Dance Company.
It explores what it means to feel alive and empowered, drawing from ideas of vulnerability, surrender and our embodied sense of community. Live music originally composed and played by multi award winning musicians, Will McNicol and Luke Selby.
"Heather Walrond is a new choreographer of rare talent. Her first work, 'The Rising', taps into a common sense of the joy of movement and of community and is so life affirming and uplifting that it can appeal to everybody. Choreographically it is full of nuance, flow and beautifully judged shifts in dynamic. Experienced dance audiences and the general public alike rose to their feet at the end of 'The Rising', when performed at Pavilion Dance. It does that to you." Deryck Newland, Artistic Director of Pavilion Dance South West.
"WOW, what an amazing performance. I am inspired, awestruck, a bit tearful and hugely joyful. Thank you for such a stunning evening!" Audience Member
