Oceanallover Presents: Ecdysis (In Vivo)
This is a unique, collaborative work showcasing visceral choreography, unique costume from Oceanallover and live performance from vocal supremo Breezy Lee.
Ecdysis is part of a series of events that explore the idea of stepping out of your old skin in order to grow. Our project highlights the need to preserve the unique ecology of reptiles and specifically those reptiles that can be found in the wild in the UK. Ecdysis is made up of several short chapters, each section speaking to one reptile species. The animals are represented through original music written especially for the work This includes a collaboration between Breezy Lee and Dubstep/EMP heavies Sgt Pokes, N-Type, Silkie, Lost, Mako, Pinch Sepia, Franck Alba and Uncool Adam.The choreography has been devised as a collaborative project directed by Alex Rigg with dancers from Scotland, London and New York.
