Alexander Whitley’s 8-Minutes

(Eckhard Thiemann – Associate Dance Programmer)

March 18th was meant to be the world premiere at The Lowry of Alexander Whitley’s new creation Overflow. The work was ready-to-go, rehearsed and we were so proud to give its first public performance. Sadly Overflow then became one of the first shows we had to cancel following the closure of our theatre.

We are pleased that the company now have made their wonderful previous work 8-Minutes available: a stunning visual feast combining high-definition imagery from BAFTA award-winning visual artist Tal Rosner, and hypnotic score by electroacoustic music innovator Daniel Wohl. 8-Minutes creates a striking, immersive environment of dance, music and film to illuminate our relationship with the star that gives us life: the sun.
