A Bit About What We Do;
In a world of such diversity what does it take be original?
SARDOVILLE is collaborative by nature, made up of parts of our surnames it is what the name represents and it is what the company does.
Through this we expect for ourselves an innovation of sorts.
Innovation for us means playing with what it means to collaborate. In our productions you will of course see that several artists have been working together but what you will also witness are the actual components of the production collaborating in front of your eyes.
Andrew Walker has helped us to take collaboration to another level. In a sense he is not the true collaborator of this project but has instead designed a costume that collaborates of its own accord as it fuses with the performers over the course of the evening.
Andrews designs also take reign, they demand a certain degree of effort to be effective and so in entering into a collaborative agreement with the costumes the dancers commit to a rigour that ensures an intense physicality that is enthralling to watch.
Beyond the production the dancers become advocates for the show.
The design impressed upon them.
