Theo Clinkard - new solo work entitled 'Chalk'

TLF is proud to be providing support for the British based choreographer, Theo Clinkard for his two week research and development towards the creation of a new solo work entitled 'Chalk'.
Theo has been collaborating with composer James Keane in developing this new work, with Melbourne based dance artist Rebecca Hilton acting as creative consultant.
Working at the studio of Lucy Geurin Inc, Clinkard he has been observing contrasts; the personal and the epic, the familiar and the foreign, the inner and outer.
Providing a creative springboard, is the analogy he has drawn between his own body and the giant chalk cliffs of his hometown which are entirely formed of the compressed skeletons of marine plankton.
These early dance 'sketches' will be developed further in May before the solo premieres alongside his new quintet 'Of Land and Tongue' in June 2014.
