Grantham’s very own Chantry Dance Company put on a fascinating light and dance spectacular at Gravity Fields on Saturday night.
Hundreds watched the three performances of the show in Market Place. The performance featured Dominic North, a talented young dancer of the Matthew Bourne Company, and Rae Piper in the the principal roles. Rae runs the Chantry company with husband Paul Chantry, who choreographed Chasing the Eclipse.
Rae came up with the concept for the show which tells the story of Lumen (Dominic) and Scura (Rae), who as the son of light and the daughter of darkness, cannot be together except during an eclipse and so the quest begins to bring them together.
A new score was written for the 25-minute performance by Tim Mountain and there are eye-catching costumes by Zoe Squire. Joe Stathers-Tracy was in charge of design and a video projection.
