HELEN COX (ENGLAND)
FRIDAY 7 JULY
The motion of a single pendulum is wholly predictable, but when another pendulum is connected the movement becomes complex and uncertain. Acting as a metaphor for the interdependent relationships we have with those people close in our lives, we find that the stronger the connection, the more complex it becomes. In double pendulum we see two people push, pull, flourish and falter, but never stop.
Helen Cox is a Canadian choreographer based in London, UK and a MA graduate from The Place. She is active as dancer (having performed work by Helena Franzén, Darren Ellis, Crystal Pite and Hofesh Shechter) and a ballet/contemporary teacher with Canada Water Studios and The Royal Ballet School.
‘It is one of the few dance works I have seen that stands on its own choreographic merits without any need for notes or explanations.’ – Nicholas Minns, Writing About Dance
