There are two sides to every story… Through adversity, there comes triumph. Through pain, there comes love. After a storm, comes calm. Double Take, created in 2010 , is an intensely courageous double bill work that surveys the impact of black dance and Bawren Tavaziva’s contribution to the contemporary dance landscape in Britain. An immersive celebration of culture, hardship, agony and joy, performed by eight fantastically exuberant dancers.
[A] tour de force with a spirited punch
Tavaziva harnesses the speed and energy of his muscular dancers with consummate skill, creating patterns of collective movement and individual architecture that is endlessly inventive… these powerhouse dancers deliver a memorable and exciting exploration of two cultures.
[Bawren Tavaziva develops a] visceral brand of swift, coiled and calisthenic classicism that connects ballet, contemporary and African traditional dance into one playful yet fierce, space-eating language.
