A Curious Day

A Curious Day was our first major piece, and was also Southern Arts Board's first dance and education project.

Kevin and Louise devised and choreographed the piece, working in conjunction with 2 musicians, trombonist Harry Dawes and saxophonist Simon Prince.

The work looked at a day's routine from a child's perspective, from the home to the playground to the exam room.

Based on the philosophy of taking performance into teaching, A Curious Day was also seen by people from The South Bank, leading to our first performance being secured at The Purcell Rooms.

Premiered | 1989, UK
