Choreographed by British talent Jamie Watton, co-founder of Physical Recall Dance Company, Phasing weaves strands of delicate movement to create a playful and vivacious study of human relations set to an uplifting soundtrack by the Steve Reich Group. A gentle piece for three dancers which is energetic and colourful.
The choreography’s finely calibrated recklessness is distributed equally among the company. Welly O’Brien is a star performer: at times she is flung by the more mobile dancers; at others she turns, dips, falls on her own momentum with exquisite abandon. And when wheelchair-user David Lock rakes the audience with a dark, furious gaze, it is haunting and intimidating.
