IONA KEWNEY - Director / Dancer.

JOSEPH QUIMBY - Composer/ musician.


'A visceral physical and sonic experience.

With her unique idiosyncratic movement, Iona dives unforgiving to the edges of Power and Fragility with wild abandon and fierce broken control.

The Regal and the dirt.

A journey of the heart; the physical Vision of unspoken words that takes the body to limits and renewal in relentless belief and the Urgency of Now.

Reaching places of surrender, higher 'states' of being, Methods of Madness, Control and Disorder through dance, hand balancing and contortions to become 'the other'.

From hysteria, strengths and failures a Euphoric song of the soul rises in pure Vision.

The totality of hearing the atmosphere callings in the body.

Movement from the eyes that see Inside and the eyes that see Outside.

Riding on the hunt.'
