GOLKK Theatre, one of the Graduate Theatre Companies sponsored by the School of Arts, will be performing as part of the Resolution 2019 festival, currently being held at The Place, London on Thursday 31 January 2019. They will be performing the premiere of a piece entitled rest[less].
The Place is a dedicated dance and performance venue located in central London. It hosts the London Contemporary Dance School, validated by the University of Kent.
rest[less] is a non-narrative piece, exploring the physical and psychological effects of over-working. It uses a unique movement language translates the topic into a seemingly abstract and absurd world. Inspired by the construction of beehives, the performance shows a relentlessly buzzing world of ‘work’ juxtaposed with a warm, honey-soaked ‘home’. A gallery of rehearsal images can be found on the School of Arts’ Facebook page here.
