111 is an extraordinary duet interpreted by the dancers Joel Brown and Eve Mutso which explores the strengths and vulnerabilities of both performers. Joel Brown is a self-taught paraplegic dancer who is a member of the inclusive UK dance company, CandoCo. Eve Mutso, who is currently a freelance dancer and choreographer, was first ballerina of the Scottish Ballet. The number 111, which gives the work its title, makes reference to the vertebrae shared by Brown and Mutso. Brown’s spine has eleven fused vertebrae, and Mutso is so flexible that it "seems she has a hundred". We will watch excerpts from 111 followed by a conversation between Eve Mutso, the filmmaker George Bushaway in charge of the video project, and Susan Hay, a cultural manager with extensive experience in the world of dance and the arts.
Sign language interpretation will be offered for the conversation
