AN EVENING of pure aesthetic pleasure is promised next week when Dartmouth’s Flavel Centre welcomes Dutch choreographer Gerard Mosterd to the port.
Internationally acclaimed Gerard is a former student and friend of Dartmouth’s Linda Goss, now teaching the New Choreography course at Dartington College of Arts.
Gerard brings with him fellow dancers Wendel Spier and Ming Poon for a double bill entitled Angin and Unfolding to be performed on July 22. The evening offers an electrifying mix of the mystery of Indonesia, with the vigour and wit of contemporary European dance.
Unfolding is a 20-minute abstract contemporary dance solo with electronic score by Canadian composer Paul Goodman in which South East Asian dance elements merge with contemporary dance.
Angin is a 30-minute autobiographical statement in dance, researching the Asian-European twilight zone in which choreographer Gerard Mosterd was raised. After the performance, members of the audience will have an opportunity to meet Gerard, Ming and Wendel to discuss their work.
Tickets for the evening, which starts at 7.30pm, are available from the Flavel box office on 01803 839530.
