AXIS Dance Company in “Full of Words”

This is why I got drawn into volunteering for AXIS Dance Company, and they just get better and better. This weekend’s performances of “Full of Words” (I saw the one reviewed here and this afternoon’s) were quite riveting and beautiful.

Here are some video excerpts from the performance.


Choreography by Marc Brew / Original Score: Dan Wool

Judith Smith, Artistic Director of AXIS Dance Company, has this to say about the piece:

As if peering through the windows of three different rooms, UK-based choreographer Marc Brew challenges us to think about how we might exist with each other in passion and conflict. The physical conversations, encounters and interventions told through Brew’s edgy, intricate movement vocabulary, ask questions of what it is to be human and who might dance.
