Dancing days

The end of semester season of performances at the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination continued last week with the From the Roots Dance Show.
The show doubled as an exam for the dancers and choreographers of the centre and saw performances ranging from solos to elaborate group pieces.
The dancers covered several subject matters in their performances, including womanhood, betrayal, and feelings of entrapment among others.
The standout choreographer was Lisa King, who presented two pieces; her duo with Simone Gill – entitled Mirrors – examined being confronted with different aspects of oneself, as the dancers mirrored each other’s movements. Her group piece, In Us You See, used bodily architecture to express feelings of confusion.
But the highlight of the show came in the final performance, AYO, choreographed by Teila Williams. Set to Timaya’s Shake Up Your Bum Bum, the dancers used several forms to express unabashed exuberance.
Technically, the performances are always incredible, but this semester’s work has been particularly impressive. The work of the dance lecturer, Neri Torres, cannot be understated.
