Metchen

Project 345 | Contemporary, Cross Media, Elbow Room Dance Company | Area: Elbow Room Dance Company | 2 Stories | 0 Events

Metchen (Armenian meaning from within) was a stunning music and dance collaboration, resulting in a 40 minute solo work. Launching Elbow Room Dance Company at The Lemon Tree in 1999, in partnership with their then Director Shona Powell OBE, touring Scotland in 2000.

“truly unique…a wholly new language…deliciously poetic, beautiful and continually inventive…witty, experimental…dance works like Metchen are hard to find and so are artists as self-effacing, inspiring and confident as Ani” James CJ Allen, contributor to The Scotsman

“40 minutes of sheer bliss” Press and Journal

Grateful thanks to funding from the Scottish Arts Council, Aberdeen City Council, the Lemon Tree and the Bonnie Bird Choreographic Fund with further support from Morag Deyes of Dance Base, to Frank McConnell’s mentorship, City Moves and Rainbow Dance Centre for studio space and to Doug Moir for his leaflet design and haunting flyer image
