Silence Between Waves 

‘Silence Between Waves’ is a site specific contemporary dance work performed by a cast of professional  Singaporean dancers and a mass community cast of local people from Torbay. Taking inspiration from the views of Berry Head in Brixham, the work frames a conversation through movement and sound, connecting two places across the sea by reflecting on home and far away. Comparing the South West coastline with that of urban Singapore, the work explores how the sounds of the coast are an escape from noise pollution. 

The creation will feature dramaturgy by Neus Gil Cortes and a soundscape by composer Samuel Hall of recordings of people from Torbay describing their memories of Berry Head, their relationship with the sea and communication over long distances. 

Alongside site specific performances, Silence Between Waves will be created into a film by Daniel Martin, and will be performed alongside Still Touch for RCDs June 2019 tour dates. 

Silence Between Waves was commissioned by Torbay's Great Place Scheme and funded by Arts Council England and the National Arts Council of Singapore. The project has been supported by EyeView, Exeter Phoenix, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Singapore), Dance in Devon, ROC Creative and Sound Communities.
