Artist Statement:


    Winter is the second half of The Two Seasons, which was commissioned by the Charles Linehan Dance Company with funds from the Robin Howard Trust. The complete work consists of two sections, Summer and Winter, each of approx. 14 minutes duration, and a brief transition section. Summer and Winter have identical temporal structures, and share some common and related material. The choreography in each section is identical, only danced by different dancers. The effect is of viewing a single landscape in different seasons and may be likened to the series paintings of Claude Monet. A unique relationship between the music and the dance is established in which the choreography reinforces the structural relationships between the two pieces of music while the music serves to differentiate the two dances. The Two Seasons was first performed at The Place Theatre in November 1995 and has since had numerous performances including Spring Loaded 96,Woking Dance Umbrella 97, Nottingham Playhouse, and a tour of Estonia and Finland. Winter is presented here as a concert work in its own right. It is the first performance in this form.
