Every Gesture by John Scott is a movement statement for six unique individuals, sharing a space and a need to move, creating new dance conversations.
MinEvent by Merce Cunningham (Arranged & staged by Daniel Squire). A MinEvent is an uninterrupted sequence of excerpts drawn from the work of Merce Cunningham. Each MinEvent is unique, and is designed to suit the particular space in which it is presented. This MinEvent was arranged and staged by Daniel Squire expressly for Step Up Dance.

I Call To You by Catherine Young follows on from the past 2 year's of Catherine's work with asylum seekers and refugees, but now looking from her own perspective instead of theirs. Frustration & sorrow set in as does a real sense of the magnitude of it all, as friends face deportation and other friends are detained for trying to help. What hurts them ultimately hurts us, we are all connected. This piece is for all those who stand, for Sean Binder, Sarah Mardini and Vehash Mansoor.
For once you see, you cannot un-see, once you know, you cannot un-know.
There is always something you can do.
Look. See. Act. Stand.
I call to you.
