Cuckoo – External event
1st - 31st January 2021 | 12:00am
Set to a poetic musical score the piece is playful, short and reflects on our relationship with time.
Time is passing. That, we can rely on. Time flies, drags, suspends. Time heals, wears us down. We waste time, chase time, cherish time. It leaves its mark.
Cuckoo is a new visually striking and playful dance film from Candoco Dance Company, inspired by a bespoke prosthetic leg created by Sophie de Oliveira Barata of The Alternative Limb Project, for dancer Welly O’Brien. This unique limb is carved from cherry wood and features a working cuckoo clock and pendulum.
This short choreography for camera is a reflection on our changing experience of time passing, set to a poetic musical score by Jules Maxwell.
