Wintering Next Wave Festival 2012

Wintering

Wintering, the latest dance work by choreographer Aimee Smith, asks the question what is it to live in a changing and disintegrating world? How do we sit with the tension between beauty and destruction, hope and fear?

Inspired by the fragility and strength of an iced landscape Wintering uses imagery and sounds collected by the artist from the Arctic environment together with the moving, dancing body to explore this complex relationship between humans and the natural world.
