Rock Bottom

Andy Pink composed the music for Stuart Waters' dance piece ‘Rock Bottom’ in 2018. Rock Bottom makes a harrowing and healing journey through the world of addiction.

Touring early 2019, Rockbottom is a powerful, topical new dance theatre solo from Stuart Waters, a successful performer for 20 years making his debut as an independent artist.

Combining bold story-telling with highly physical choreography, Rockbottom is a moving and incredibly honest self-portrait of personal struggle with depression and addiction. Although Stuart’s subject matter is semi-autobiographical and fundamentally dark, his treatment is relatable. The themes are leavened with humour and warmth, skyrocketing between existential angst and irony, and give prominence to the roles of resilience and support networks within recovery.

BeautifuK

Stacks Image 257
BEAUTiFUL is a new dance theatre work for 2018 conceived and directed by Sally Marie, Artistic Director of Sweetshop Revolution and created with dancers; Flora Grant, Natacha Kierbel, Sandra Klimek, Pauline Rainari, and Tania Diembelolo and composer Andy Pink

Through movement and text, BeautifuL explores love and sexuality from the female point of view; what is fantasised about, desired and permissible within the complex web of social structures, expectations and cultural history. These extraordinary female dancers lead us through their own experiences of sexuality and love, contrasting an exploration of the history of women’s sexuality with a time of gender fluidity and polyamory, as we move away from the idea of a fixed identity or stereotype. Taking the autobiography of each woman and embedding it into the global – ‘BEAUTiFUL’ celebrates the solidarity of women, by taking femininity to a more deeply truthful place – past the gloss of media spin and pressure to conform. Essentially, ‘BEAUTiFUL’ is a doorway into a dialogue about how women and men are experiencing relationships, sexuality and the body right now. At the heart of it lies a question: how do we love and how has it changed?

Border Tales

Protein Dance's 'Border Tales' is touring again in 2018 for the fourth successive year. Made in 2013, before 'Brexit' had been heard of, Border Tales pre-empted deep questions of identity and multiculturalism in contemporary Britain.

Cape Farewell

Andy Pink and multidisciplinary designer Ingrid Hu have jointly won The Cape Farewell Foundation competition for the public art installation at the Tidal Lagoon project in Swansea Bay. Their time based sculpture will feed off the clean energy generated from the tidal lagoon to create a living mist sculpture and sound installation. More information at the Cape Farewell site.

Ai Weiwei

The Indigenous Dome Project is a collaboration between Chinese contemporary artist and activist Ai Weiwei and six Native American Indian artists which premiered at Miami Art Basel in December 2014. Andy Pink was commissioned by Navajo painter Tony Abeyta to write a score for his contribution "Aqueous Acquiesce" to the dome project. Gravity and tides have infused Andy’s thinking in the creation of the score influenced by Ai Weiwei's concept title ‘Pull of the Moon’. The piece was created in surround sound with multiple loudspeakers placed around the perimeter of the dome.
This piece will show in Europe in 2018

Lol (Lots of Love)

By the time it finished it's final performance in 2012, LOL Lots of Love had visited four continents and played to thousands of people from Thailand to Columbia, Beirut, Tunisia, Egypt, Slovenia, Morocco and Palestine. The piece explored the impact the internet and social media was having on our everyday existences with a gentle humour and warmth whilst cutting through to the 'isolated togetherness' that was dawning. The LOL CD is always available at Andy Pink’s BandCamp page and on the usual streaming services Spotify, Apple Music etc.

Original music by Andy Pink commissioned by Luca Silvistrini’s Protein

“Linked at the speed of light, we live on a thrumming spider web of interconnectedness. There is no single centre any more, only multiple centres. sequential linear time has broken down into synchronous simultaneous time. The earth is encased in a spinning ring of communication satellites and everything is available everywhere in every moment. And we still barely know how to love one another or deal with the Lessons of Love” Andy Pink

“Andy Pink's score I loved. Seamless, dancey, clever, inventive and upbeat.
Just right.”

"During the whole of the opening section, Andy Pink's score fills the stage with waves of clashing, grinding noise. The sound is a deliberate assault on the dancers, who appear to be flung around by its force - catapulted into flailing, staggered lines, or dashed, twisting, to the floor. For the audience, seated on all four sides of the stage, the combination of driven energy and savage pattern making is overwhelming; it comes as a relief when Pink's music .. begins to calm the frenzy." Judith Mackrell The Guardian
