Memory informs our everyday lives, but what triggers our recollection of past personal experiences? TOBY will be exploring memory recollection through movement and live electronic music.
Do you remember locking your front door this morning? No? How about your first heartbreak?
Our memories are strongly linked to our emotions, they play a vital part in how we remember specific events. The stronger the emotion felt, the more vivid the memory.
These types of memories are described as episodic or autobiographical and are the focal point of TOBY’s new work. Each dancer will be exploring their own episodic memories with the aid of live electronic music from Benjamin Winter, creating an environment in which the audience becomes more aware of their own memory recollections.
A storm is created, dismantled and reconstructed. In its eye, stories fleetingly take shape before being washed away in intricate and ferocious movement. What is God doing in the darkness?
Loyal Prophets takes place in a world teetering between the imaginations and realities of the people it describes and the people who perform it. Bringing together dancers from all over Europe, Barnaby is himself a recent graduate of the Northern School of Contemporary Dance and the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD). As well as being a choreographer, he works extensively as a lighting designer, and immensely enjoys bringing these two areas of great personal curiosity together, aiming to make energetic and thoughtful work that he hopes might take an audience to another world... just for a bit.
