Asylum Chapel, Peckham, was the premier venue for Retrospect Dance Theatres first full length work 'In Light of Those You Love'. The perfect setting for Katherine and Tom Heath to play out their distorted fantasies in the comfort of their 1950s home.
The night commenced at 7:30pm with a 10 minute interval to break up the 1 hour 15 minute production. The night ran smoothly and was received with a standing ovation. Both Hannah and Chris were blown away by the audience response and want to personally thank everyone who purchased tickets to support RSDT's dream to continue creating and performing work.
The next step for 'In Light of Those You Love' is to tour the work around the UK.
Earlier this year Retrospect Dance Theatre was accepted to perform at Choreography31: International Choreographer's Platform. The company performed a 12 minute section of 'In Light of Those You Love' which was the original material, the later expanded version started from. The company performed at Theater am Agei, central Hannover, Hannah and Christopher felt very privileged to be accepted into this established platform and be able to perform in a venue of this size so early on in the company life.
The whole experience was invaluable and the feedback gained from the industry professionals (Nanine Linning, Stephen Dellatre, Ed Wubbe, Gary Stewart) was useful for the further development of the work. The piece was different from the other competitors due to its theatrical nature and complimented by many as 'refreshing and original'.
The whole experience was rewarding and vital to the development of the RSDT.
