Choreographer Aya Kobayashi created a new dance piece entitled Huddle with Indepen-dance’s Adult Performance Company that explores ideas centred around the lives of penguins in some of the world’s harshest environments. The themes include patience, resilience, and care for each other – with a good dose of humour thrown in!
The costumes are designed using charity shop finds and discarded materials such as broken camping tents, airbed mattresses and parachutes to of Antarctica’s cold weather and to create a soundscape when the performers move with the wind. Items were kindly donated by community members reducing the amount of broken item ending up in landfill.
Huddle is presented as part of Gathered Together at Tramway on 6th June 2022.
