Rosie Kay returns to stage

The absolute Queen responsible for choreographing the Commonwealth Games handover ceremony, Rosie Kay, is appearing on stage for the first time in six years. Launching a triple bill of solos, Rosie will be looking backwards and forwards at her personal experience as a female in dance with what will be the first performance to re-open The REP. Some 21 years on from her first-ever solo show, Absolute Solo, which she performed in the 1999 Edinburgh Festival, comes Absolute Solo II, on May 19, from £18. The new work was created in lockdown and explores the emotional connection between her life and dance. Now, a little older, she has something to say about the female body and the experience of being a woman on stage. Part autobiography, part socio-anthropological study, Rosie uses ideas of performance, identity, sex and gender to explore her new dancing spirit. More
