Premiere September 2008 Deda Derby
4m2 is the first collaboration between choreographers/dancers Claire Cunningham and Jose Agudo, with composer Scanner. The performance was created as artists in residence at Déda, UK in summer 2008.
Claire and Jose have previously worked with a range of companies including Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, T.R.A.S.H, Theatre Rites, Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company, Rui Horta, Ballet de Marseille, Random Dance and Charleroi/Danses.
Taking real stories of isolation as a starting point, 4m2 explores these memories as a way to find freedom and places of escape: the disparate tales of a Tibetan held in captivity, a Swedish actress whose stammer disappears when she performs, an Icelandic woman poised perilously atop the edge of a cliff, the freedom of being on an empty stage.
4m2 is set against a stunning backdrop by visual artist Sian Stammers and an original score composed by Scanner.
