Last Friday I visited Urbanguild to see a trio of local dance legends: Bridget Scott, Heidi S. Durning and Rosa Yuki perform together for the first time. All the dancers now being in their fifties and Bridget having very recently turned fifty herself, they wanted to celebrate and see what would bloom and manifest from a collaboration. All of the dancers gave a spirited and colourful performance, but Bridget’s was particularly striking as she held 50 roses in front of her face like a dramatic mask. After the show I remarked on how much her personality seems to shift on stage into something more elemental, and she agreed saying that transformation was an essential part of dance. Altogether it was an enjoyable and imaginative show, and I look forward to seeing these three perform together again.
