Castle Keep, Newcastle upon Tyne

Reparation is a culmination of research, collective discussion, shared motivation and choice. Expressing through creative movement and improvised music, the physical representation of self-conscious social emotions  placed in opposition to that of primal emotions such as fear and anger. Reparation can be described as an illuminated proximity of emotion, untrammelled and performed on impulse with freedom. Performed in the chapel of the Castle Keep, built by Henry II between 1168 -1178; One of the finest surviving examples of a Norman Keep in the country.
The fourth collaborative work created by Surface Area Dance Theatre – UK, Mico and David Nuss of No Neck Blues Band – NYC.
