“Black dots ebb and flow; through arteries they pump and squeeze and twist in a way that resembles a machine, or system. I am a passing shadow through this city…”
Rain Pours Like Coffee Drops offers a moment of stillness in the busyness of working lives. Within 1 in 5 people feeling unable to manage workplace stress, this piece is for those who wants to re-evaluate their relationship to work or those who wish to take some time to unwind and be still.
Through an intimate encounter where you may sip coffee, tea, daydream or watch with wide eyes, Rain Pours invites you to a time-suspended world where coffee brews slowly and concrete buildings rise from the ground. The textural movement of Billy Maxwell Taylor compliments Sebastian Barrett’s ambient piano score and a series of meditations in English and Welsh, curating a space for contemplation.
The ‘Relaxed Performance’ showings will feature the following adjustments:
– Low level house lights remain on throughout
– Sound effects will be reduced in volume
– Audience can be admitted and readmitted at any time
– No flashing lights or images
The Motion Pack curates memorable movement worlds, breathing harmony, contemplation and presence to the blending forms of dance and theatre. Billy Maxwell Taylor, the artistic leader, is an interdisciplinary movement practitioner. His performance with company's such as Frantic Assembly, Divadlo Continuo and Created a Monster develops alongside his creations with National Dance Company Wales, Volcano and Richard Chappell Dance.
