Fire Shadow Silence by Jessie Brett (UK)

Inspired by the life of Tina Modotti. With music composed by Jered Sorkin, Fire Shadow Silence is Jessie’s unique response to Tina MOdotti’s extraordinary life. The pieve revolves around two performers; one is the younger tina, the other is the older Tina. Intertwined solos explore the connection they have with each other, sandwiched between duets where the two women try to recognise themselves in each other. A study of the different sides of one person and how life changes us as we pass through it.

Jessie Brett is a British choreographer and dancer who regularly collaborates with artists from across Europe.
