Resonance is a concert performance of original music, composed by Alison Jones, inspired by legends of female warriors, from a time when honour and elemental forces were the powers that influenced lives.
Resonance introduces a brand new style of performance, blending haunting music and exhilarating dance into an unforgettable evening. The original concert pieces are composed by Alison Jones and performed live by Alison on violin and vocals, together with six musicians on a variety of instruments, including flute, guitar and clàrsach (Celticharp). A fusion of flamenco, classical, Arabic and Scottish disciplines, the composition is inspired by the legend of a conquering young Celt, who encounters a tribe of formidable warrior women and learns from them the value of love, respect and equality.
What makes Resonance especially dynamic is the mirroring of the hero’s journey in a thrilling series of dance pieces, choreographed by dancer and martial arts European champion Cecily Fay. Two dancers play out the narrative on stage in a combination of dance, martial arts and acrobatics.
Resonance is so much more than a concert, giving audiences a unique and engaging experience.
A tour of 3 concerts will journey through the South West, complimented by 2 workshops for local disadvantaged women, exploring self esteem and confidence through music, drama and dance.
Having secured funding from ArtsCouncil England, West Dorset District Council, South Somerset District Counciland Corsham Town Council, Resonance will journey across SouthWest England from the 6th – 8th June2018:
