This spring we introduce to London the work of Roberta Jean with Brocade a poetic response to historical and contemporary notions of craft and physical work. Created in collaboration with, and performed by, an exceptional ensemble of female dancers including Stephanie McMann, Helka Kaski and Carys Staton, this intimate piece also features live music by Angharad Davies.

Across the stage, movement and sound are propelled along a catwalk, sewn together by the rhythmic cadence of beats and jumps. Sonic textures resonate with the presence of the women forging alliances. Somewhere between a procession and a concert, this work has the precision, strength and delicacy of an intricate piece of lace.
