Co- choreographed by Kathy Richardson and Caldonia Walton this 50 minute work explores the concept of the 'weight' of our mind that we carry around everyday and our procrastination because of unnecessary fears and anxieties. The work carries the audience through an immersive journey with Karen and her mind battling through her steps towards seeking support.
Most recently Weight/Wait was performed at the 2019 Brighton Fringe. The work has previously been explored through residencies with East London Dance, London College of Fashion, and at London Studio Centre in 2017. In 2018, a first version of the work was shared at venues including Birmingham International Dance Festival, Arts for Health hospitals and support groups, The Hive (Shrewsbury), DanceXchange and Greenwich and Lewisham Young People's Theatre and most recently Brighton Fringe Festival
A "completely engaging" and "emotionally intelligent", upbeat dance theatre duet that explores the mental and physical ‘weight’ of our thoughts and inner voice through raw, physical movement, dark humour, original text and lively music. The audience are taken on a journey through Karen’s first counselling session; "it reveals the fragility of the human condition"
