I went to John Butterfield’s Your Body is a Battleground and it was challenging. A mixture of dance and drama putting ‘the question’ to audience: though showing a series of physical encounters – couples, men, women, and singles.

This is not a pure contemporary dance work, and it is not a play (there is a dialog), but a mixture of both. Most of the performers were mainly dancers:

  • Amelia McCarthy,
  • Eliza Sanders,
  • Felix Sampson,
  • Mark Semple,
  • Jacob Edmonds,
  • Laura Beanland-Stephens,
  • Roymata Holmes, and
  • Susie Berry.

This work, works well, partly because the anti-room where the audience waited had posters, and a projection wall, creating the context for the work. This made contemporary dance very accessible.
I wish them every luck in making the Fringe Festival.
