Spirit Compass is a new live dance installation from renowned dance artist and choreographer Lucy Suggate.

As we all buckle under the weight of the collapsing system, Spirit Compass searches for a remedy. Can we slip through the cracks and reintegrate, repurpose and reorganise, in order to become more-than-human?

Featuring a live percussion score, Spirit Compass is an island, a temple of sorts, where a tidal meditation of movement responds to the increasing crisis and complexity of the 21st century.

Join us, drop in and stay as long as you like. Spirit Compass is an antidote to over-complicated, never-ending bureaucracy, in which movement itself offers relief from the sedentary environments and technologies that are submerging us.

The project will come to Nottingham Contemporary and will host performances throughout the first weekend of February.
