Steps Youth Dance Company

Taking it’s name from anthropological understandings of ‘totem’, this work invited the youth performers to reflect back to audiences hypocrisies and pleasures of contemporary life. The design by Paul Wakelam and Ahmad Abas involved a large ‘motherload’ that descended from the fly tower and a smaller ‘hearth bed’ positioned downstage. Sound design was by local contemporary music artist Mark Cooper. The dancers responded to the onstage environment with agency, power and subtlety.
