Shunt is located in London Bridge Station. Look at the map!
NOTE: because of the location of the venue you need to have an ID to get in

The Shunt is a extraordinary venue that will close down very soon. This may be your last chance to go there before then! There are plenty of very interesting performances and installations to look at to have a very nice and exciting evening!

Sticky Pathways:
As it is a space specific work it will be quite different from the premiere last March.

Choreographer’s note:
Sticky Pathways is an unfolding labyrinth of rambling dimensions and slanted reflections where people exist on the cusp of dream and reality.

Music note:
In Lucy’s Sticky Pathway the music has been involved in the creative process at all times. From the beginning we did dance and music improvisation where the dance and music influence each other. For this work it was very important to have a strong link between the dance and the music and to integrate completely the music and the musician in the work itself as well as incorporating sounds made by the dancers in the music. To be able to make this mutual influence dynamic we used live music either solo or with live electronics (bassoon, treble recorder solo and voice with live electronics) or accelerometers to follow closely the movements of the dancers. (Accelerometers from Nintendo Wii Remotes that control the sound in an application programmed by Sonia Paço-Rocchia using Max/MSP)
