(i)Land | Marc Brew Company 

Friday 4 September 2015, 2pm & 6pm

Saturday 5 September 2015, 11am & 2pm

Roseisle Beach, Kinloss (off the B9089 to Burghead), Moray

 

(i)Land is a dance performance that follows three characters faced with life on deserted island as they uncover the means of escape back to civilisation. Drawing inspiration from such stories as The Lord of the Flies and Castaway, (i)Land engages audiences, questioning our perception of the body, the politics of disability, isolation and exclusion, integrity and invention. The production is centred upon a six-ton pile of sand which provides choreographer Marc Brew with a safe dance space to explore movement in solo, duet and trio, away form his wheelchair.
