Hollow Square

Samuel Pott and Tim Eriksen explore the spiritual threads which emanate through communal sound and movement-making.

In this new work, dancers construct a ‘Hollow Square’, where facade and artifice are stripped away and the invisible world of spiritual connection is made manifest within the otherworldly space of Tim Eriksen’s sounds. To fill a human need for deep interpersonal connection, 18th century inhabitants of Massachusetts’ developed Shape Note choral singing, one of America’s oldest art forms, with roots from Europe, Africa and the Americas. Today people crave this same communal, humanistic connection, only partially satiated by digitized or transactional relationships. ‘Hollow Square’ positions the dancers as intrepid leaders, willing to explore and embody the simple yet elusive precept: by disarming oneself – fears, ambitions, insecurities – and opening to others, we uncover the deep bonds that always exist beneath the surface.

Tim Eriksen composes new music for this 20 minutes new work. Samuel Pott choreographs on a cast of 8 dancers.
