Bodies In Flight have released a brand new documentary reflecting on their 2019 work, Life Class.
This 16-minute film highlights their creative process that has been formed over 30 years and includes reflections from the company, participants and audiences from performances of their latest work, Life Class, at Lakeside Arts in Nottingham and in Preston as part of Lancashire Encounter 2021.
Life Class celebrates our greatest, most memorable, most requested role – ourselves. Through poetic text, music, and intricate choreography it asks: how did we end up playing this part, in this scene, with these lines? And wonders – who’s this dancing opposite? How do the people we share our lives with determine who we are, make us us?
Working with tea dancers and a male voice choir, Life Class was presented beside the Flesh and Text exhibition that celebrated 30 years of ground-breaking work by Bodies in Flight.
