Free Falling

Arts & Culture

Award-winning Hagit Yakira Dance presents Free Falling, a sensual, striking double bill of contemporary dance. Hagit Yakira has created a powerful and atmospheric programme based on a collection of stories gathered over her years of working as a dance movement therapist. 

Air Hunger is an emotive and breath-taking duet. Inspired by the fear and anxiety of suffocation, the performers embody reactions, images and memories, leaving the audience immersed and breathless.

Free Falling looks at the idea of falling, failing and the determination to recover. A captivating poetic piece by four virtuoso performers taking the audience on a journey of trips, false starts, falls and lifts that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Original soundtrack: Sabio Janiak Lighting design: Michael Mannion

Dramaturgy: Lou Cope

Producer: Sarah Shead - Spin Arts

Free Falling has been made possible with the support of Arts Council England, Sadler’s Wells, Laban Theatre, Dance4 and Spin Arts. Air Hungeris commissioned by Respond, a collaboration between Yorkshire Dance, the University of Leeds, Breakfast Creatives and Liz Lerman.

‘...the work of a rare choreographer who knows what she wants and knows how to get it and then gives it to you.’ ★★★★★ Plays to See 

‘It takes some skill and professionalism to pull off something like this, and choreographer Hagit Yakira has it in spades.’ ★★★★★ London Theatre 1 

‘Yakira does not so much create a performance as encapsulate a state of being. Free Falling is a subdued, almost hypnotic work, emphasised by composer Sabio Janiak’s equally soft and lulling music, but it is none the less engaging.’ Londondance.com
