Project Description

Hawk Dance Theatre is a Manchester based contemporary dance company led by young choreographer Josh Hawkins.

Hawk’s emotive outdoor trio has been specifically created in response to a turbulent year.  And Then It Just… Stopped takes as its starting point a poem by Charley Genever inspired by the reaction of young people to unsettled isolation. The piece centres on a large scaffolding frame on which Hawk’s three athletic performers climb and weave.  As the desire of the protagonists to move once again grows and grows, their movements create a powerful evocation of resilience.  An atmospheric electronic score by Lee Affen underpins the choreography, with Genever’s words grounding the work with an authentic sense of hope.
