Taking inspiration from the views of Berry Head in Brixham and the Singaporean dancers who perform the work, Silence Between Waves frames a conversation through movement and sound, connecting two places across the sea by reflecting on home and far away. The work is fuelled by local stories of people in Brixham through a soundscape that features local people describing their relationship with the sea and communication over long distances.
RCD has commissioned filmmaker Daniel Martin to create a full film of the company dancers featured in Silence Between Waves, which will be uploaded across the internet on the 8th July.
Silence Between Waves was commissioned by Torbay's Great Place Scheme for Eyeview's Extraordinary Festival and funded by Arts Council England and the National Arts Council of Singapore. The project was co-produced by EyeView and Dance in Devon and supported by Exeter Phoenix, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Singapore), ROC Creative and Sound Communities.
