Something unknown before, unrecognised, lurks concealed in the shadows. Scissors cut, paper drifts, darkness falls. Twigs snap and bird bones break. A piece that hints at the fragility of life and the shock of the unexpected.
The Long Winter was part of the 2015 Wales Dance Platform. It was selected by Wales Online as one of their top picks, and was reviewed by Steve Stratford:
‘Day two ended with what could be my favourite work of the entire platform…a beautiful, delicate evocation of the ageing process, the fragility of life as we hurtle without escape toward the inevitable…The power of The Long Winter stayed with me long after I’d left the building. That, for me, is a haunting legacy to leave your audience.‘
