Forged Line Dance Company – Lina
March 10, 2017 @ 7:30 pm£6 – £8
Lina explores the lives and obsessions of brother and sister William
and Caroline Herschel. Both talented musicians and celebrated
astronomers, they studied the universe and mapped the stars from their
garden in Bath.
A new dance work from Bath-based company Forged Line, Lina delves into
a caring yet complex relationship, where family ties are tested by
individual ambition. Music merges into science, art becomes
mathematics, and a brother and sister, far from home, change how we
see the universe forever.
This intimate and emotionally charged duet is inspired by themes of
creativity, invention and frustration that shaped their extraordinary
story. Featuring music composed by William Herschel.
“The two dancers balanced with real grace the evolution that led
William and Caroline Herschel to become leading astronomers. The
movement echoed the discovery process; at times explosive, with both
dancers rushing across the stage like synapses firing ideas; sometimes
delighting in the mundane”
