“When a specific life is used as the inspiration for choreography and text based songs for the score, movement runs the risk of perpetuating a linear narrative that exists outside corporeal realms. No such thing happens with Cathy Marston’s fantastic and most recent work, Hunting Me…at first it seems like a risky proposition to place a rock band centre with the ensemble of fourteen to the sides, but it pays off with strange and compelling results. Eye and ear are attuned to the band, but by creating an atmosphere of physical exploration the choreography engages a sixth sense. Because of the strong collaborative force between dancers and musicians, an unconventional atmosphere builds – otherworldly but oddly accessible.”
