Modern Masters: Vincent Dance Theatre
The Guardian, 15 March 2015
Last week, to mark the 21st year of the company’s existence, Vincent Dance Theatre took up residence at Shoreditch town hall. There were installations, film screenings and simultaneous performances of two live works: Underworld (2012), Charlotte Vincent’s darkly haunting take on the Orpheus myth, and Look at Me Now, Mummy, her tragicomic exploration of the role of the modern mother. Funny, fearless and flintily determined, Vincent inspires unshakable loyalty in her dancers, and is one of the most important feminist artists working in Britain today. Contemporary dance fans should beat a path to her door.
