The silence of the dance

SCANDINAVIAN dance company Panta Rei Danseteater will be staging a remarkable performance for Artsreach in a private house at Halstock on Wednesday 16th October.

Silence, which will be performed twice at Caternwood House, offers an alternative to the noisy hustle and bustle of our daily lives. We all want a bit of quiet – “a nice hot cup of silence”.

It is precisely in those moments of quiet that our deepest thoughts arise. Panta Rei Danseteater explores what special sensations arise when silence is allowed. Along with a live musician, the dancers use gesture, rhythm, and interactive moments to share a very special experience.

Afterwards, over a real cup of coffee or tea, you can get to know the performers, and let them get to know you.

• Panta Rei will also be performing Silence at Loves Cafe, Weston Super Mare, on 13th October, and at The Old Rectory, Awliscombe near Honiton, on Saturday 19th, with Devon’s Villages in Action rural touring group.
