Road Postures is an abstraction on the way we negotiate, traverse and shape the space around us. The work frames two bodies that are both charged and uncharged successively and at once.

Stephanie McMann and Roberta Jean perform. Research for Road Postures was supported by Chisenhale Dance Space and The London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The commission involved observations of the local community, focusing on the contrasting ways in which people present themselves day-to-day and the way people manoeuvre their bodies through public spaces.

Directed and choregraphed by Roberta Jean. Filmed by David Stewart. Made with support from Dance4, Chisenhale Dance Space, Dartington and Arts Council England.
