Fri 8th Feb: Bonachela Dance Company

Hannah Beal took me to the Southbank centre for the performance of "Square Map of Q4". Choreographer Rafael Bonachela collaborated with an amazing list of creatives on this piece........... The Production Designer is Alan Macdonald who is know for film credits with John Maybury and direction of Kylie's tours . The composer Marius De Vries (worked with Bjork, Massive Attack, Madonna) actually played and conducted the musicians at this performance. The white and sheer geometric patterned costumes were designed by fashion designers Meadham Kirchhoff. Lighting designer Guy Hoare incorporated laser projections onto the dancers to create moving sculptures. What an unexpected treat since I had no idea what I was going to see! Added bonus was Embankment lit up with a whole palette of dazzling lights along the length of the Thames.
