1998 – 2024

Four dancers performed a dance of reverie and fear. A dance to the death. Being Barely There I Saw You Too was the fourth forest dance; a chamber ballet, a disappearing act.

Blinded by the tears in their eyes, they danced as one or are possessed by the movements of others.

Miraculously dismembered, their bodies were sawn in half and their limbs scattered around the forest floor.

Darkly elegant and ferociously chaotic; this was a dance of reverie and fear at a funeral in a forest.

This was a dance to the death.

Commissioned and presented at South Bank Centre, London; NOTTDance Festival, Nottingham; Phoenix Arts, Leicester; Arnolfini, Bristol.

Funded by London Arts Board, Creative Developments in Dance Fund with additional support from the Dance Administration Fund.

Performed by Frank Bock, Nanette Kincaid, David McCormick, Harry Theaker; original Music composed by Luke Stoneham; Forest Dance Theme sound design by Ian Hill.
