A group of people gently navigate their way through a precarious forest of balanced poles. Everything hangs delicately in the balance as they carefully carve out space for themselves to sprawl out and dance. At any given moment, everything might topple to the floor. But if it does, that’s ok. Together, they’ve got this.

Time is continuous, transient and constant but how we perceive time is subjective to our experiences and emotions. We notice the passage of time in retrospect “how am I already this old?” and our psychological time gets out of sync with physical time. However, time is cold and unbiased, only moving forward, with us experiencing time by experiencing change. Whether we’re running out of time or having all the time in the world; seizing time or wasting time, often we feel happiest when we don’t notice time passing at all.
Faye graduated from London Studio Centre in 2015 and went on to join Rambert 2 where she completed her MA. During her time in Rambert she performed works by choreographers including Ohad Naharin, Itzik Galili and Benoit Swan Pouffer with leading roles. Faye has since worked with companies and choreographers including Richard Chappell Dance, Agudo Dance Company, Julia Cheung, Dickson Mbi, Keneish Dance as well as working commercially with credits including Years and Years, BBC, and numerous brands. Faye’s choreographic style is influenced by the many dance techniques she has come in contact with over the years including underground battle and club dance styles. Alongside Faye’s career she participates in the Ballroom Scene where she specialises in New Way Voguing and is part of The Iconic House of Revlon.
