Stampede the Stampede

Tim Darbyshire
Arts House,
Meat Market
Wed 18 - Sun 22 March

Presented by Arts House and Tim Darbyshire

Stampede the Stampede is a nolo (not a solo), performed by Tim Darbyshire within a turbulent yet controlling choreographic apparatus.

It is a nolo in the sense that the work attempts
to expand choreography by means of machinery, object, lighting and sound configurations, created in collaboration with
the core artistic team.

A raging installation
A corrosion of posture
A rupture disrupted
A controlled struggle
A predictable scribble
A violent fragility
A suspended rush
A mechanical falling
A splintering of individual
A lyrical hoard
A chaser being chased
A turbulent ballet
Surrounds the surrounded
Stampedes the stampede
