MA Choreography student Malcolm Sutherland premieres new work at the Resolution Festival

Calendar Posted 12 January 2018

Malcolm Sutherland, a student on Central’s MA programme in Choreography, will premiere a new piece titled Lost for Words at the renowned Resolution Festival on 26th January. Resolution is the UK’s biggest festival of new dance and performance works by emerging artists and is being staged at The Place in central London from 12th January to 23rd February.

Malcolm’s piece is described as a physical manifestation of the feeling of being lost for words, unable to produce speech or to find words to express a current state of emotion. He explains the idea: “The duet will follow the story of a woman who has been waiting for a very long time, repeating the same routine day after day, waiting for something. One day it will finally meet her, but she will not be able to recognise it for what she has wanted all her life, too consumed by the waiting by which her life is now defined.”

Producing this piece is part of the MA programme, allowing Malcolm to experiment with new ideas whilst remaining in the context of performance. He comments: “Working and collaborating with composer Davidson Jaconello on this new short work has been an insightful experience as music plays a vital role for me in creating ideas and shaping final choreography.”

Malcolm trained at Central School of Ballet and is a former dancer with Nürnberg Ballet. He returned to Central to complete an MA, one of only two students accepted each year on this programme.

Louise Ainley, Central’s Director of Higher Education Programmes said: “It is fitting to see the work of Central’s MA choreographers premiered at the Resolution Festival, providing evidence of the calibre of the work and the on-going vision of the MA. Our aim is to foster and inspire the career development of some of the dance profession’s most talented choreographers".
