‘Reflections’ do-dance Performance

DSC01552

Reflections is a solo site specific contemporary dance, choreographed on the ever changing shores of Lincolnshire’s east coast.  Choreographer and dancer Sophie Watkinson has been inspired and explored the landscape here over the past 3 months to create a response to the surrounding space and scenery.

The natural sounds and wildlife has influenced Sophie’s practice and the piece is constantly developing.  There is an element of chance and improvisation within Sophie’s site specific work as many factors will influence the performance on the day, such as the weather, tide, location, and atmosphere.  Reflections has been devised using the nature and the untouched natural landscape of our beautiful coastline.
