A Moment Black and White Intimate Dance Scene

Thomas Page Dances have a choreographic practice rooted in socio-political ideas in movement, following their latest performance at the Resolution Festival, they were deemed “in a different league” with a 4-star review and complimented on their “natural affinity for deeply felt movement” an attribute they have continued to invest in for their latest work; A Moment.

Responding to Bren Gosling’s play ‘Moment of Grace’ two contemporary dancers (Llewelyn Lewis and Thomas Page) explore what it was to be gay in the 80s and Princess Diana’s opening of Britain’s first AIDS unit. Featured in Offbeat Festival’s Supported Artists Programme, Thomas Page Dances, are presenting this intimate duet, with the hope to spark a new wave of conversations around HIV/AIDS helping to raise awareness whilst creating a physical archive of such a vital part of our history. The performance moves through gestural phrases and intricate partnering to create different episodes and relationships creating a highly visceral experience for the audience.

Premiered in London with a sold-out run at the Bloomsbury Festival in a double bill with Gosling’s play, TPD are excited to be bringing the work to Oxfordshire home of their contemporary dance training programme and Youth Company. Thomas Page, artistic director, said: “We’re really excited to be bringing A Moment to Oxford as part of this year’s Offbeat Festival 2019, working with such an amazing team of people who are all so passionate about the work and the wider conversation it is part of has been incredible. I think it’s so important to make sure the younger generation are aware of the stories and events that advanced gay rights and paved the way for many of the freedoms the LGBTQIA+ community have today.”

A Moment comes to Arts at the Old Fire Station June 25th – 27th 8.30pm Tickets £10

Be the Light in the Darkness

Remembering the Holocaust through film

Film has proved to be a powerful medium when it comes to insight and influence. For the Holocaust, film acts as a beacon, an unbridled archival reminder of the atrocities, and gives a platform for the survivors to tell their stories so generations never forget the evil committed.
