Two dancers perform on a 1.5-meter table, BRINK was created as a response to the tension, confusion, frustration and division caused after the Brexit vote in 2016. Feeling like we’re on the brink of something unimaginable that we have no control over, the work explores the fragile nature of the human condition and how even the most utopian dreams are flawed by humanity’s greatest weakness, greed.
I was compelled to make a work that explores the futile, divisive nature of high-risk negotiations where human existence is laid bare, even the smallest mistake or misjudgement could be fatal and everything is ‘on the table.
