Trapped - Experiential Dance / by scott twynholm

This week I'm off down the pits in Wakefield working with Experiential Dance on Trapped, a newpiece inspired by the story of the San Jose mine in Chile which trapped 33 miners back in 2010. I remember watching the story unfold at the time, and watched along with the rest of the world as all 33 men were rescued. It's not often I'm asked to write and perform underground and I'm excited by the prospect. So far I've read Hector Tobar's Deep Down Dark, a compelling account of the incident, which has given me a greater appreciation of simle domestic tasks! I've also paid a visit to Europen Metal Recycling to arm myslef with banks of industrial sounds. We have a free sharing of the weeks work on Friday so if you are in the Wakefield/Leeds area pop along. Hardhats provided! Details on the flyer below...
