Detailed Description

Shot on location with a specially composed soundtrack, this dance film was created specifically for the camera. It is a site-specific work featuring The Cholmondeleys  and The Featherstonehaughs as two groups, one all-female and one all-male, going on holiday. The Cholmondeleys, en route from London to Calais, cram into a train compartment, take snapshots on board a ferry, get their suitcases muddled up on Calais dock, and spiral up a hotel staircase to their rooms. Meanwhile the Featherstonehaughs, on a cycling tour near Dover, cycle on their backs, crawl out of tents perched above Dover cliffs, abseil down, and tiptoe into the water. Gradually their dances converge. As the sun sets the Featherstonehaughs are transported to a beach hut to join the Cholmondeleys for an all-night bottle party.  As the tide comes in, dawn reveals one upended beach hut, with a solitary figure stranded in it. NRCD also sell a resource pack to support the study of this work.
