“I used to be interested in clothes, clubs, buying records. And men. Now my life... what life?” – Moment of Grace, Bren Gosling.

On Thursday 7 July, the Torch Theatre welcomes a groundbreaking new production from Thomas Page Dances, called A Moment.

Two performers explore what it was to be gay in the 80s when the UK was full of fear and ignorance, in a response to Bren Gosling’s ‘Moment of Grace’. An intimate duet moving through themes of paranoia, intimacy and oppression using the medium of contemporary dance.

A Moment dances through intimate human connections into explosions of physicality woven together in Thomas Page Dance’s unique style of gesture, contortion, and grounded visceral movement, with an intricate score by composer Robert Singer.The piece draws parallels between the 80s and the present day, reflecting on what has changed and the lasting impact that period has had on the LGBTQIA+ community. The work also gives thanks to those who made it possible to say, “HIV is no longer a death sentence” and ensures such an important part of history is not forgotten.

Thomas Page Dances, are presenting this intimate duet, with the hope to spark a new wave of conversations around HIV/AIDS helping to raise awareness whilst creating a physical archive of such a vital part of our history. The performance moves through gestural phrases and intricate partnering to create different episodes and relationships creating a highly visceral experience for the audience.

Tickets are £10.00 or £8.50 for concession. Tickets are on sale from the Box Office on 01646 695267 or online here
