Winter Ground by Undercurrent
performed as part of a double bill with IMDT
Winter Ground is a migratory journey explored through dance theatre and projected film, created and performed by the ensemble Undercurrent directed by Kate Wilson and in collaboration with film artist Róisín Loughrey.
Drawing from Undercurrent’s first performance work (2016), this new work continues the ensemble’s explorations of mobility whilst also investigating issues of navigation, endurance and relocation based on an exploration of migration in birds. Expanded symbolism of each image is explored through live movement and film. Travel, motion, and the cycle of arriving and leaving are some of the defining factors of migration explored in this work.
