GRAHAMSTOWN DANCE AND SPORT (article first published : 1999-06-27)

Stungis a unique show crossing the boundaries of circus trapeze, stage, dance and sport. It will be presented at the 1999 Standard Bank National Arts Festival by Momentary Fusion, Britain's pioneering aerial dance theatre company. The company has grown out of the skill of aerial circus, theatre, film and dance and focuses on the artistic development of aerial choreographic techniques as well as the collaborative possibilities of light, music, sound and visual arts.

The company was formed in 1993 by Sophie Griffiths and Isabel Rocamora. Rocamora directs the dramatic and visual aspects of the work, while Griffiths is instrumental in the development of aerial techniques. The versatile Lindsay Butcher brings additional strength and depth to Momentary Fusion

Stung is high-powered, anti-gravity choreography performed with serene violence. Three suspended bodies explore an androgynous world where beauty and strength co-exist. With extreme athletic drive this choreography of swinging ropes and hanging sculptures is combined with light projections, live drums and the use of radio microphones. Its baroque and science fiction blended aesthetics offer a rich contrast to what is a feat of flight imagery and choreographic invention.
