GOlive is a dance and performance festival curated by the arts journalist Donald Hutera (The Times, etc) and produced by George Sallis, founder of the Giant Olive Theatre. It launched in autumn 2013 as an eclectic, intimate and playfully unpredictable platform for dance-based and other work by performing artists of all stripes. GOlive’s base has been the Lion and Unicorn pub theatre in Kentish Town, which is also where the latest and laboratorial edition is in progress until June 18.
Hutera is hosting each evening during a nine-night season where the spotlight will be on dance and movement with special emphasis on the work of women spanning the generations. Under the name of BIG Ballets, long standing colleague Jennifer Jackson and I are delighted to be performing once again at GOlive on Thursday 18th June in inflect, unravel – a dance and music collaboration exploring Ravel’s Sonata for violin and cello with violinist Jenna Sherry and cellist Jonathan Rees (viola da gamba player from Two old instruments).
