IF ONLY . . .
Seen atTramway, Glasgow. Run Ended. -
To keep imagination fresh, to tap into buried emotions, DV8 returns to its childhood. In the course of nearly all the set pieces in this free dance performance, one dancerwill be seen isolated at the edge of the stage, building sand castles, looking on from above or performing a lonely imitation of the main action.
If Only. . . is an exploration of possibilities and vulnerabilities. One moment you can fly across the stage, the next you need a friend to catch you. A girl joins in with the boys' game, then sets the pace herself. A boy is victimised, but later collaborates with the team.
Sally Herbert’s music is rhythmic, repetitive and intense, while Steve Whitson's lighting cuts the stage apart, by turns separating the performers then bringing them together. Less punishineg vigorous than in the past,
Lloyd Newson's choreography still allows for bursts of cruel energy, but is more commonly spiced by moments of wit. Verging on the acrobatic, Newson makes full use of the performance space as the dancers swing precarioust on ropes high above the stage or fling themselves recklessly against the walls.
Becoming less clear towards the end — and not helped by technical problems on the first night — it is nonetheless a captivating performance that talks about struggle, freedom and identity in a lively, accessible manner. (Mark Fisher)
