ReAWaken draws inspiration from a volcanic boiling point and the Ring of Fire - an array of volcanoes that rim the Pacific Ocean. The work expresses one of the most devastating forces on earth, a Volcano, through the power of a female body.
ReAWaken simmers intensely beneath the earth's skin, always volatile, always on the verge of breaking through.
ReAWaken is the process of rediscovering the primal female body. It’s a highly visceral work with intense muscularity. The dancers are required to tremor, freeze, brew, explode and be liquid at various times throughout the piece.
