Current Repertoire available for touring
KaSt is touring Scotland and the UK throughout 2015, and can offer a mixed bill from their repertoire, plus a tailored education programme.
Who We Are/Who Are We?
Who We Are/Who Are We? introduces KaSt while exploring the idea of identity; how the dancers find their ground by taking risks, trusting, and challenging each other. It’s a fun duet which draws on the relationship between the dancers and juxtaposes their individual styles, with a sense of playfulness. Choreographed and performed by Steven Martin and Katie Milroy.
One Night is the story of a life-changing relationship, told through live music, highly physical movement vocabulary and intricate contact work. The visceral movement language tells the story of these men together and as individuals, replaying their raw emotional journey in front of the audience. The duet is broken into sections by a performer singing alone at a microphone with aguitar, showing the vulnerable cracks in the relationship and giving the audience another way to connect to the performers. Choreographed by Steven Martin. Dancers: Steven Martin and Joel Wilson.
Tête à Tête
Choreographed by Steven Martin. Dancers: Michaela Gebremedhin Wate and Joel Wilson.
Choreographed by Katie Milroy. Dancers: Lawrence Gorringe, Ailish Maher, Christina ReedRichards, Steven Martin, Michaela Gebremedhin Wate and Joel Wilson.
