‘I used to be interested in clothes, clubs, buying records. And men. Now my life…what life?’
A beautiful contemporary dance duet exploring what it was to be gay in the 1980s, when the UK was fill of fear and ignorance – and how attitudes began to change after the iconic Princess Diana handshake. Llewelyn Lewis and Thomas Page move through themes of paranoia, intimacy and oppression.
The work gives thanks to those who made it possible to say “HIV is no longer a death sentence” and ensures such an important part of history is not forgotten.
A Moment is a piece in response to Bren Gosling’s play Moment Of Grace. It was first performed at Offbeat 2019.
“If you’re a fan of contemporary dance, come for a gorgeous piece by a fantastic emerging company. If you’ve never come to a dance performance before, come for a heartbreaking duet: the perfect first dance show.” – The Old Fire Station’s programming team
★★★★ “In a different league” – The Sunday Express on Thomas Page Dances
“An incredible piece giving a platform to allow for conversation. Truly mesmerising and awakening.” – Audience member, 2019
