When Saturn Returns
Thanks to support through Arts Council England’s Project Grants programme, The Place Choreodrome Commission & Dance City Newcastle's early stage commissions. ‘When Saturn Returns’ recently completed its second Research and Development phase in Dec 2021.
‘When Saturn Returns’ is explosive, surreal and bonkers, the duet follows performers and real-life close friends, Alicia and Alys, as they battle with expectation, fear and success.
The show follows a game that takes us on a dramatic journey of whimsical imagination, vulnerability and disappointment spurred on by demonic creatures that have been birthed by ideas of success. The chaos is interrupted by small moments of comfort and hope found in friendship and platonic intimacy.
