Hawk Dance Theatre present our first full length work; (we)SINK.

(we)SINK is a dance performance exploring climate change and human psychology. Inspired by psychological mechanisms that make humans disengage from climate change challenges, this new work, choreographed by Josh Hawkins, explores feelings of; distance, doom, dissonance, denial and identity in response to our changing climate. Performed by Emmie Coxey and Freya Thomas, this captivating duet questions whether these defence barriers can be broken and if we will ever truly connect to this topical issue.

(we)SINK received funding support from Arts Council England in 2015 and since then has been previewed at the Brewery Arts Centre. The piece has also been adapted for smaller festival and platform performances.

With thanks to: Arts Council England, The Brewery Arts Centre, Ludus Dance, Dare Dance.
