ROOTS - National Dance Company Wales
National Dance Company Wales presents Roots
Four short pieces of dance from Wales, each different from the one before it.
Roots is a guided tour through contemporary dance. We take some of our favourite pieces and pair them with a discussion to help you get to the heart of the stories, and learn behind-the-scenes secrets.
Rygbi: Annwyl / Dear
by our Artistic Director Fearghus Ó Conchúir celebrates rugby in Wales and highlights the hopes, glory and passion of rallying together on and off the pitch.
Rygbi was created with input from rugby fans and players across Wales so that the dance really echoes the sport.
by Nikita Goile was inspired by a letter from iconic artist Frida Kahlo to her partner Diego.
The clever duet is performed by a female dancer and a giant silhouette of her lover. It’s a beautiful power struggle that reflects the ups and downs of passionate relationships.
Why Are People Clapping!?
by Ed Myhill is set to composer Steve Reich’s Clapping Music and uses rhythm as a driving force. The dancers use lively movement and clapping to create a soundtrack for the fun and dynamic dance.
by Anthony Matsena who grew up in Swansea and is about Welsh people who come together to tackle isolation and depression during troubled times. It’s an energetic and uplifting dance about the strength of communities.
