Since studying anatomy, physiology and pathology within the context of my holistic therapy massage training, my relationship to my body has changed; a deeper sense of sensuality along side the fundamental moving body has triggered this piece ' talking back'.
For those of you who haven't seen my works. I come from a narrative, communicative place, some might say theatrical. This is an exploration that describes a transition between the subtlety and expansion of the talking back with lines of abstract weaving into cyclical shapes, a present state of awareness brings a still centre to contrast the narrative.

Between Us is raw, poetic, intimate dance theatre from E MOTION +. Company founder, dance artist Emma Snellgrove, illuminates relationships between women – mothers, daughters, sisters, friends – their stories, memories and broken communication. Examining the structures of empowerment and disempowerment of the human in everyday life, it peels away the masks we wear to reveal the vulnerable animal underneath. Between Us is performed by Emma Snellgrove and Joanne Pirrie, with a live score by Atzi Muramatsu. The piece was originally developed in collaboration with Lucy Boyes and with dramaturgical input from George Mann (Theatre Ad Infinitum).
