Alison Ray’s performance work, “Dance and Perception”, encapsulates the essence of a shared movement narrative and it’s re-translation, through the dance experience of three performers, who specialise in a variety of styles ranging from ballet and hip hop to African and contemporary dance genres. It is their individual and collective unity of performance that makes this work intriguing and dynamic to watch; wonderful sections of duet and trio motifs fill the stage, and opportune the use of repetition of movement  vocabulary that frames a sense of individual/togetherness. An exciting and engaging piece of work that showcases the talents and versatility of the artists, whilst unfolding wider questions about identity and the perception of culture in today’s society.
