Matthias Sperling :  Do Not Be Afraid

Matthias Sperling : Do Not Be Afraid

Matthias Sperling and Antonia Grove don superhero lycra and delve boldly into the relationship between body and mind.

Both humorous and deadly serious, Do Not Be Afraid proposes that the dance performer's superpower is the ability to make their mind visible for an audience, in and through their body. 

Dance4 Associate Artist Matthias won a Bonnie Bird New Choreography Award in 2008. His work approaches live dance performance as a social arena for learning about the relationship between Body, Mind and self, irreverently engaging with questions of how we negotiate the cultural embodiment of scientific theories.  

Previously at Nottdance and as part of Dance Umbrella 2011. See a vimeo clip of the work here.

Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Dance South West / Pavilion Dance, Leeds Metropolitan University, Greenwich Dance, Laban Theatre, Nightingale Theatre and Dance4.
