GUESS-STATION - June 2001
Five pieces charting a series of emotional landscapes...
"Where do I go to learn the
In the house - a kitchen, in the kitchen - a table, on the table - the soup?
Heart of the family, eye of the storm. Like a Russian doll - a Matrioshka - the ancestors both carry and are carried by the living child, forwards and back in a space we cannot enter, just glimpse in instants of terror.
This ensemble work, conceived by Bruno Guastalla and directed by Ana Barbour, was premiered at Freud café-bar, Oxford in 2000 and went on to appear as part of the 2002 'Resolution' season of new work at The Place in London.
Did you ever hide inside...
(Duet with wardrobe: Helen Edwards and Tom Wilson.)
A Short Dance of Longing
An improvisation, an encounter. Mirrors and shadows, desire and loss.
"One never loves somebody else; one loves what there is of oneself in them or what one believes to be"  (Fernando Pessoa)
(Duet by Ayala Kingsley and Ruth Parkinson. Concept by Bruno Guastalla.)
Of Mountains and Molehills
A tale of insignificant bumps and insurmountable humps. Shifting views in a passing landscape
(Solo by Ana Barbour with video by Phil Wilkes.)

What decides the moment labour begins, what is the point of transition between one phase and another, what is the relationship between internal and external worlds..?
(Concept and choreography by Jeannie Donald. Ensemble cast.)
