Fragments of memory, love and nightmare

SOMERSET-based contemporary dance company Project Dance has two January dates with Artsreach, Dorset’s touring arts charity, at Buckland Newton village hall on Friday 19th and Drimpton hall on Saturday 20th, both at 7.30pm, with the acclaimed two-person dance theatre work, Fragments.

Project Dance is led by artistic director James Bamford, who comes from Yeovil and was previously an artist with the English National Ballet Youth Company. The company strives to create ambitious, innovative and ground-breaking professional and youth dance works for stage and screen.

Performed by two dancers, Fragments tells the intimate story of a young couple who, when faced with what anyone else would describe as a nightmare, learn to fall in love with each other again, piece by piece, memory by memory. This uniquely intimate piece of dance theatre expresses the vulnerability, anxiety and helplessness of falling in love.
