This lunchtime presentation will include the screening of two new Dance films by choreographer Dora Frankel, Touch the Beast and Tread Lightly on the Planet.
 
Touch the Beast evokes a gothic world through the lens of the 21st Century, featuring a charismatic cast caught in a moment of time; sensual, strange, gender fluid it is inspired by the tales and poems of Edgar Allan Poe and the visual art of Aubrey Beardsley.
 
Tread lightly on the Planet is the third and final part of a JMW Turner-inspired trilogy, along with part 1, The Unfolding Sky: Turner in the North (2013) and part 2, Figures in a Floating Landscape (2019). The film coincides with Dora Frankel’s 70th birthday and celebrations of her nearly fifty year career. It is her fourth collaboration with composer Peter Coyte.
 
The rest of the lunchtime programme will consist of a live Bharatanatyam dance performance by award-winning dancer/choreographer Santosh Nair. Santosh’s piece will explore the grammar of Bharatanatyam dance, creating a journey through the repertoire of this ancient Hindu dance form.
