WORLD PREMIERE Brighton Festival, May 25th 2017





Touring UK in October 2017

Over the last five years, Brighton-based choreographer and designer, Theo Clinkard, has built a reputation for creating affecting and visually arresting work. He follows his recent commissions for Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch and Danza Contemporanea de Cuba with This Bright Field, a new work for his company conceived in two parts.


Part one takes the audience on stage in small groups for an intimate encounter with Clinkard’s exceptional company of twelve international dancers. Visible within a maze of constantly moving screens, tender exchanges between the performers help the audience to connect with the cast.


In Part two, Clinkard’s choreography takes to the full stage on a cinematic scale. Retaining vivid impressions of the first part, and with the familiarity of the individual dancers still in mind, the audience is back in the auditorium seats. Featuring striking lighting design, bold costumes and music performed live by James Keane, This Bright Field gradually builds in momentum to become a spectacle of visual and emotional power.
