Both funny and melancholy, combining text and movement, Desert Island Dances explores notions of absence and presence in a piece inspired by the popular radio programme, Desert Island Dances. As Wendy remembers conversations and movements from a life left behind, we wonder what gestures we might take with us to a desert island.
Jerwood Choreography Award Winner (2003), Wendy has developed a uniquely distinctive style that combines movement with text and meaning with humour.
‘ A maverick to the tip of her toes, [Houstoun] seems to reinvent herself for each new work…it’s daringly brilliant. ‘
