Directed by Lea Anderson with Compania Danza PUCP
|Hailing from Lima, Peru, Compañía Danza PUCP perform for the first time in the UK. A short tour this January sees the company give its UK premiere of ‘Laberinto’, a new work by choreographer and self-styled professor of misconstruction, Lea Anderson (The Cholmondeleys & The Featherstoneaughs).|
Created in collaboration with Peruvian artists and long-time collaborator, composer Steve Blake, ‘Laberinto’ continues Anderson’s work around misconstruction of reimagined lost dances, leading the audience on a serpentine journey into the labyrinth, into worlds beyond death. Choreographed with Anderson’s trademark wit and gestural detail, Laberinto’s surreal world draws upon pre-Incan 2D imagery peppered with cross-cultural references including Ancient Greek fauns and nymphs, Betty Boop and Cab Calloway.
Laberinto was supported by British Council, PUCP Lima and Arts Council England, with UK tour support from Mr and Mrs Clark and Impermanence Dance.
