Three & Four Quarters

HeadSpaceDance, led by acclaimed dancers Charlotte Broom and Christopher Akrill, perform a thrilling new programme of work.

Introduction

This dancer-led collaboration includes a selection of solos, duets and trios choreographed by Mats Ek, Javier de Frutos, Luca Silvestrini and Didy Veldman.

Background

HeadSpaceDance represents an exciting new development for British dancers Charlotte Broom and Christopher Akrill. Having both danced with Cullberg Ballet and the Northern Ballet Theatre, and participated in many ROH2 productions over the years, they come together in this new venture as dancers, curators and producers.

Three & Four Quarters is HeadSpaceDance’s debut work and it receives its world premiere at the Linbury Studio Theatre in 2012. Broom and Akrill are joined by Clemmie Sveaas to perform newly commissioned pieces by choreographers Javier de Frutos, Luca Silvestrini and Didy Veldman. The evening culminates in the 1991 duet Light Beings by Mats Ek (whose Carmen came to the Royal Ballet in 2002), which he has reworked specially for the company.
