Co-Commissioned by Dance City, J Neve Harrington brings a new full-length work performed in the round by an intergenerational cast of professional artists alongside a community cast of local young adults.

From collective beginnings in the unknown to questions raised through individual lifetimes and the scope of memory. Harrington leans into neurodivergent ways of processing information, taking audiences on a sensory journey through different ways of experiencing time, witnessing changing patterns and relationships.

SOME TIMES offers possibilities for ways we can be together across different generations in the times we are currently living through; referencing the climate crisis, digital, geological and distinctly human time scales. This piece reaches far beyond the human, and into the past and future. Whilst there is both lightness and darkness, the dark is full of light that we cannot see, so how will we choose to pay attention to what is there, despite being beyond our senses?

Co-Commissioned by Dance City and South East Dance. Supported by Arts Council England and Bonnie Bird Choreography Fund. Supported through residencies with Siobhan Davies Dance and FABRIC. The wool used in the space design is donated by DMC.

An informal post show talk will take place after the performance in the atrium of Dance City. The talk will be with a member of the Dance City team, the Choreographer and members of the company.

Talk duration: 20 minutes.
