“The work, May, surfaced from my desire to create a story set in a fictional narrative context, with characters that had all the difficulties and complexities of real people. I also had a craving for a fantasy element , and was driven by the idea of a twisted, distorted reality that forced the story into the imaginary world of fairy-tales.
I wanted to combine my love of dance, word and music and to find ways that those elements can exist together effectively in harmony and discord.
I wanted to allow Tim a freedom to tell his story in the knowledge that dance and music would fill in the gaps, would complete the picture. I invited Pete to direct us; to make, mould and shape the evening, combining all the elements together, bringing the story to life.
We dance, we speak, we sing, we make music and we are all striving for the same thing; to find a truth and clarity within a tale about a complex human relationship.”
