Gwyn Emberton Dance. My People

Gwyn Emberton Dance. My People

I have been drawing Gwyn Emberton Dance during rehearsals for My People, at Greenwich Dance. This dark turbulent dance takes it’s name and inspiration from Caradoc Evans‘ collection of controversial short stories written in 1915. The six dancers, Gwyn Emberton, Federica Esposito, Albert Garcia, Anais Michelin, Ryan O’Neill and Rachele Rapisardi transport the audience through strong flowing movement to the turbulent village life of Manteg.
