Morphic is a dance theatre and music work examining the relationships and dependencies we have with technology and the idiosyncrasies that are manifested as a result. The work draws parallels between the 21st century digital evolution and the first known prehistoric bird, the Archaeopteryx, considered to be the pivotal animal between avian dinosaurs and modern bird species. Just as winged species were instinctively driven to adapt themselves to take full flight, the human race is also driven by a constant demand to update, upgrade and #hashtag.
The original music draws from musique concrète and contemporary classical styles. The “Morphic” score includes a sample of the composer’s string quartet work “28”, composed for and recorded by the NOISE quartet by Bob Scott and Lyle Chan released on Vexations840.

Eva Fernandez Adan and video artist Rachael Brown have collaborated to create the latest chapter of Pieces of Mind for film. A powerful work featuring Adan’s passion for high energy dynamic dance combined with Brown’s intricate understanding of movement on screen. Pieces of Mind is a physical exploration of memories, how we deal with them, how they play on our minds and how eventually we have to let them go. A personal journey which everyone can relate to, evoking images from our past- sometimes not making any sense and at other times appearing to be that elusive missing piece.
Choreography and Direction: Vicki Van Hout, in choreographic collaboration with dancers Dancers: Imogen Cranna, Anthea Doropoulos, Sarah Fiddaman, Verity Jacobsen Lighting: Guy Harding Music: Excerpts from Don Meers, David Lindup, Tooth, Pretty Boy Crossover, The New Pollutants, Ben Frost, Tykwer/ Klimek/ Heil.
Vicki Van Hout, known for her signature fusion of indigenous dance and contemporary techniques, returns to DirtyFeet with Pack, a piece exploring the dynamics surrounding animal packs and the comparisons we can draw in our own lives. Pack looks to highlight the machinations of a microcosmic lifecycle. Action, broken down into necessary function, has a truly universal dynamic and application. Even under the most proletariat of conditions, working by intuition, a hierarchy exists. Who wields the power? The one or the masses?
