Julie Cleves and Robbie Synge are close friends and Passing Through tells the eight year story of their friendship and artistic experimentation. Leaving the studio behind, the duo attempt to push the limits of what is physically possible as a partnership, bringing materials and their bodies together to come up with novel solutions to tricky problems and physical access challenges.
Synopsis: Passing Through is about two people doing what they do, at work and in friendship. Taking time, taking care and getting somewhere together. Touch, effort, risk, motivation and goals. It is about new technology or new approaches with technology and challenges expectations and assumptions. It asks us to consider the details.
Our Take: At last year’s Rise we were treated to a work in progress extract from when Julie and Robbie’s were in residence with Dance North and working on the Findhorn beach. Expect film, live performance, a sharp sense of humour and to perhaps learn thing or two about disabled access challenges.
“A tender portrait of Julie and Robbie being, doing and encountering the world together.” Ian Abbott
