Kiera Shaw | Sophie Dow

Choreographer/s | Kiera Shaw

Name of piece | a hidden autobiography

Venue | Firehall Arts Centre

Inspired by embodied experiences of physical and imagined adventures, a hidden autobiography is a celebration of setting forth on a personal journey; an ode to the ‘rogue traveler’. By placing interpreter Sophie Dow in a series of literal and figurative images, the piece emerges as an athletic meditation on cultivating a personal energetic life force. It has a silent, momentous strength, is vigorous in nature, and honours the importance of travel, in a time when it was not allowed.
