        Desert Island Dances

Desert Island Dances

Desert Island Dances concerns Houstoun's own relationship to dance and what elements of it she holds precious. Often very beautiful, this piece is in part a reflection on the nature of beauty or at least how beauty is perceived in the world of classical dance. Beginning by pointing a video recorder at the audience and immediately challenging her relationship with them, Houstoun deconstructs the arc of a performance, its necessary peaks and troughs, and the nature of her conversation with the audience. It is a personal and revealing work that exposes her sensitive relationship to dance and subtly reveals her vulnerabilities. This work would sit happily in the context of either dance or theatre programmes.

devised by Wendy Houstoun in collaboration with John Avery
