Thomas Page Dances: A Moment

Mon 1 January 0001 - Sat 16 July 2022

“I used to be interested in clothes, clubs, buying records. And men. Now my life... what life?” – Moment of Grace, Bren Gosling.

Balancing on a knife edge between keeping the joy and losing everything, this duet delves into the complex emotions of two characters living through the AIDS crisis in the 1980s when the UK was full of fear and ignorance.

A Moment dances through intimate human connections into explosions of physicality woven together in Thomas Page Dance’s unique style of gesture, contortion, and grounded visceral movement, with an intricate score by composer Robert Singer.

The piece draws parallels between the 80s and the present day, reflecting on what has changed and the lasting impact that period’s had on the LGBTQIA+ community. The work also gives thanks to those who made it possible to say, “HIV is no longer a death sentence” and ensures such an important part of history is not forgotten.
