Extremely Pedestrian Chorales presents the commonplace experience and movement language of the pedestrian as an act of beauty, meaning and gentle comedy. Based on the sublime harmonies of JS Bach’s famous Chorales, it pitches them into our present day lives with just a dash of punk-ish irreverence.

Risky Bodies examines the label of ‘vulnerable’ as an individual and collective identity during the Covid-19 pandemic. Through the lens of a mother-daughter collaboration, we explore the complexities and possibilities of shared vulnerability, seeking to understand and represent shifting perceptions of interdependence and care. Risky Bodies was developed during a Summerhall Lab week earlier this year.  Please join us for a showing of the short film which was made from the Lab, followed by a Q&A with the artists.
