Richard Skelton For The Charles Linehan Company

Choreographer Charles Linehan's dance piece The Clearing will be performed in London later this month. The Clearing features a specially commissioned score by last month's Wire cover star Richard Skelton (The Wire 326, April 2011).

The work includes four dancers: Theo Clinkard, Rachel Lopez de la Nieta, Rahel Vonmoos and Greig Cooke, and was performed for the first time in October last year. On the bill with The Clearing is The Fault Index, also by Linehan, which is described as "celebration of isolated events", where a collection of ensemble pieces is presented in a different order at every performance. London The Place, 19 May, 8pm, £6–£17.
