Norms of Conduct, Sat 6 Dec @ The Drum

November 26th, 2014 4:10 pm

The Drum are proud to invite you to a unique event created and performed by our friends at Rutherford Dance Company Youth (RDC Youth). The mysteries of human nature and behaviour are brought to life through three unique pieces of experimental contemporary dance in Norms of Conduct on Sat 6 Dec at 7:30pm.

Norms of Conduct is a fascinating combination of three individual productions crafted by esteemed choreographers Adam Rutherford, Rosie Kay and Carlos Pons Guerra, performed by a cast of vibrant young dancers from RDC Youth, three separate subjects combining for one insightful exploration of human character.

Dance of Possession draws on elements of tribalism and trance to create a mystic and magical experience. Part of Artistic Director Rosie Kay’s wider investigation as to how anthropological sources can inspire today’s art, movements are set to historic recordings from Colombia, Cameroon and Central Africa.

Costa Del Sol is set under the blazing sun of dawn in Marbella. A group of young tourists perform their rites of summer, disrupting a picturesque flamenco postcard with a sacrificial rumpus of explosive and kitschy dance by choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra.

Artistic Director Adam Rutherford’s What Sexuality Is Love? explores the notion of oppression across the world through a breakdown in laws that protect everyday human rights. The show will also feature an exclusive bespoke curtain raiser by Initiate Youth Dance Company, and a special performance of RDC Youth’s 2014 – 2015 signature piece Forge.

Under the artistic direction of Adam Rutherford, RDC Youth provides professional training opportunities to talented young dancers, working with experienced choreographers to produce new original work performed across Birmingham and beyond. Members can work towards Arts Awards certification and choreograph their own new work with the company, with members moving on to positions at prestigious dance conservatoires across the UK including Trinity Laban, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and The Place.

We hope you’ll join us for this fascinating display of contemporary dance. To book tickets, call The Drum’s Box Office on 0121 333 2444 or visit www.the-drum.org.uk, and Click Here to learn more about RDC Dance.
