Our dance theatre work Spinstren (2002) was an exploration of the metaphor of spinning. It combined new and old technologies – the spinning of thread as well as voices. Spinstren developed half/angel’s reputation for making magical spaces of performance. It combined rich veins of poetic text, sound and video with a visual and choreographic use of performers. Spinstren toured in England and Ireland during 2002 & 2003. The performers were Jools Gilson-Ellis, Carla Bottiglieri, Cindy Cummings, and Jane Kellaghan.

They were calling her. She could hear it in her deep sleep.
Gentle almost- sounds, in harmony
