2pm, 14th JULY - pay what you feel

Lucy Suggate and Charlie Morrissey invite you to an informal afternoon with tea and cake.

Come see them moving to Glenn Gould’s 1981, 51 minute recording of the Goldberg Variations by JS Bach.

“Earlier this year, Steve Paxton, the American dancer, choreographer proposer of Contact Improvisation and a huge inspiration and influence on the dance world through his thinking, performing, teaching and making died.

Steve continues to be an immense influence on and presence in my life through my years working and studying with him, and also on Lucy through her different connections with him.

After Steve died, we started to practice moving to J.S.Bach’s – Goldberg Variations as played in 1981 by the Canadian pianist Glenn Gould – a piece that Steve Paxton an improvised performance to between 1986 and 1992 – there have been many iterations of it recreated by other dancers and choreographers since.

Lucy and myself are still in the early stages of our practice, but we wanted to open up the studio for people to come see, and so that we can see how it feels to have people in there with us.”
