Resolution reviews!

Crosswor(l)ds was a resounding hit at Resolution, the audience were captivated and the piece really communicated what SLiDE is trying to achieve:

“They are worlds colliding on stage, and what happens here is a true collaboration, a showcase of their individualities as they take inspiration from one other…..the performers are really going for it, occupying the space, and the result is playful and sweet. You’re reminded that dance is a medium for encounters, where you communicate and experience others in new, physical, ways” Iris Killian

Well done Aaron and William, we are really looking forward to developing this work for an autumn performance.

Full review: HERE

Resolution Festival: 2022

SLiDE dancers Aaron and Will present Crosswor(l)ds their new duet, which explores their quest for solutions in an ever-changing world.

Wednesday 25th May, 7.30pm. The Place Theatre, King’s Cross: Tickets

Two young male performers, from their unique perspectives, attempt to discover the rules of the game moving from meticulous planning to improvised chaos and everything in between. Can they make any sense of it and find their place within it? 

This is a duet performed by Aaron and William who experience life very differently, this performance is where their worlds meet. 

We hope you can join us!
