The choreography was made in parallel with Charlotte Harding’s excellent string score, and dance and music are clearly, pleasingly, in cahoots. Harding’s music is spare but rich: it has melody but never predictability with its riffs, clear statements and space in between, and the dance follows suit

“From our earth’s beginnings, to the connected world we live in today, music has always been a universal means of communication. Bird songs to love songs, ancient scores to film scores, Morse code to coding, ‘CONVO’ explores how music gives us all a voice and our lives a soundtrack.”



… the arrangements are bold: the melody from Trans-Europe Express rings out of a dizzy whirl of sound, while Autobahn’s smooth pootle is chaotically recast as Mad Max’s morning commute. ...
