Phil Sanger is a professional dancer and choreographer with more than 10 years in the trenches working this business we call show. A former dancer with Phoenix Dance Theatre, he is now working within a collective called Sardoville with former Phoenix band mates Azzura Ardovini and Josh Wille.
For this solo, ‘For Only An Hour’, created by Mr Sanger, he tells us this much;
For Only An Hour is a manifesto about what we want to be when we grow up. It addresses the limitations placed on us in youth in terms of gender, conformity and specialism. We are encouraged to specialise and succeed at one thing but here we look at what it means to want to succeed at multiple things and what it means to be allowed to dream.
It also highlights the need for more visibility of LGBTQ+ art and aims to bring together audiences from both within and without LGBTQ+ communities through public engagement activities that inform and educate the general public about the world of queer art.
The work will be on tour later in the year so for now you can watch our feature and learn all about it an check the company website for further touring information as and when it comes up.
Filmed at Dance City on April 19th, 2018.
