From age 10.
From protest to celebration, choreographer Joanne Leighton has been collecting photographs of gatherings for over ten years. This atlas is the starting point for People United, which, after 9000 Pas and Songlines, completes a trilogy dedicated to universal movements. Nine dancers melt into the skin of these historic photographs, captured on the spot and with which we are all familiar. Tender or provocative, sheltered or exposed, between chaos and immobility, the bodies of these committed dancers give rise to a breathless physical language that dances with the revolutions and indignities of the world.
