Julie Cleves & Robbie Synge: To Earth

Saturday 19 November 2022

Saturday 19 November, 2.30pm-4pm

Free, booking required. Donations welcome.

Friends and collaborators Julie Cleves and Robbie Synge present To Earth, an intimate performance that invites the audience on a journey exploring friendship, cooperation, time and space.

Julie and Robbie weave together physical actions, film and simply fabricated wooden objects to reveal a personal story and offer a framework for broader conversation. Spanning over a decade, Julie and Robbie’s practice is shaped by a friendship and adventurous spirit that explores where and how they are able to share time and space together.

Held as a gathering for a small audience, Julie and Robbie perform a journey at a pace determined by the biomechanics of two very different bodies, embodying cooperation to and from the earth.


Direction, design and performance: Julie Cleves and Robbie Synge

Julie Cleves is a London-based performance and dance artist. Julie initially studied BA (Hons) Fine Art and MA Art and Design in Leeds. Increasing her physical practice and training, Julie has worked with a number of dance and theatre companies nationally and internationally including Graeae, Mark Brew, Scottish Dance Theatre and SPINN (Sweden).

Robbie Synge’s practice investigates physical/mechanical potentials of bodies and other physical features. His projects allow social and political themes to arise through circumstance and relationship, often through long-term working relationships with professional or non-professional people.
