North Devon Dance presents
Yo Yo Triptych



Under a vast, clear Summer night’s sky, lying on your back, watching the stars.......

‘Entanglement’ begins in contemplation of the Universe. Inter-woven with Tom Nordon’s powerfully evocative score, images of friendship, playfulness, longing, support, tension, strength & solitude unfold...somehow reflecting back at us all our relationships in a simple and moving way.

Tracing the train of thought triggered by a scientific theory, the dance puts its’ concepts sensitively and imaginatively before us, highlighting our ability to take on each others ‘properties’ in relationships almost imperceptively and our subtle desire to maintain our individuality alongside our inter-dependence. Finally, we stand alone, a strange mixture of all the people we have known, their influence on us and the individual we hope to have become.

“Two particles can interact in such a way that their individual properties become ‘entangled’.They may appear to influence one another instantaneously, whether they’re in the same room or at opposite ends of the Universe” New Scientist, August 2005.

North Devon Dance’s YoYo Triptych was formed in 2006 by Cathy Richards, Clare China and Helen Watts with the aim of creating contemporary dance in and for North Devon whenever the opportunity arises around busy family and working lives!
