The Space Inbetween
First performed as part of Silence-festival in 2016 to live accompaniment, The Space Inbetween has since toured the UK as part of Ballet Virtuoso. Dancers Emma Lister and Oliver Speers enact themes of attachment and fantasy, as choreographers Alex Newton and Anthony Kurt- Gable explore the questions:
“Alex Newton and Anthony Kurt’s choreography for The Space Inbetween was urbane and poetic, danced by Emma Lister and Oliver Speers to music by Einojuhani Rautavaara, Toivo Kuula and an improvisation from the performing musicians Pensola and pianist Anna Laakso. Lister and Speers seemed like lovers slowly torn apart, set off by the raw power of the musicians.” - Andrew Mellow, The Cusp Magazine, 2016
