Hanging Heavy by Loop Dance Company
Exploring Somatic Sensation is a practice initiated research project investigating Kinaesthetic Empathy, how audiences react to live performance (focusing on immersive and intimate work).
Do we feel dance as well as see it? In a time of running to keep up with life, how can we experience the present?
‘Hanging Heavy’ is an immersive dance experiment, in collaboration with BEAM lab at The University of Manchester. Audience groups will be tested by looking at the visceral impact of the piece. The work will evolve through the feedback garnered by creating an immersive experience with a punch, backed up by science.
