THE Sun Rose

The Sun Rose is a duet between two female dancers - a celebration of fantasy and queer intimacy. Set to a soundtrack across Roberta Flack’s career, it follows our turbulent but immovable place within the cosmos. The work focuses on drawing an accessible narrative between the two women, it reflects the ever-changing nature of our interactions and relationships: as children, lovers, colleagues, teachers, artists and acquaintances. It is as fleeting as a late shift knowing glance across checkout counters and as cherished as a goodbye kiss.
