with Hannah Rudd & Kerenza Peacock
Part of the Dawn Programme
Sunday 18 June
As the first light of Sunday breaks over the North Sea, join acclaimed dancer Hannah Rudd and celebrated violinist Kerenza Peacock for the debut of Temporarily Forever, a new collaboration created for Dawn.
Temporarily Forever is a recognition of the continual passing of experience through life, and an offering to that which is temporary – but its absence lasting. With the new dawn, a moment to honour the resonance of life we carry – and the opportunity to release this into the fresh tide.
‘Let everything happen to you,
Beauty and terror,
Just keep going,
No Feeling is final’
– Rainer Maria Rilke
Created in partnership with DanceEast
Hannah Rudd was born and grew up in Ipswich. Her love of dancing as a young girl saw her appearing in the Co-Op Juniors productions and joining Linda Shipton’s School of Dancing. Since training at The Royal Ballet School, she has danced with The Michael Clark company, Scottish Ballet, Rambert Dance Company and Birmingham Royal Ballet. Hannah works regularly with Fallen Angels Dance Theatre, and Outside edge Theatre, companies that specialise in dance and theatre as means of healing and transformation, for those who are recovering from addiction and mental health challenges.
Ipswich-born Kerenza Peacock has recorded as soloist with the Royal Philharmonic and London
Symphony Orchestras, and also recorded with Harry Styles, Barbra Streisand and Adele. Equally at home playing bluegrass or Beethoven, Kerenza has recorded for film and TV including soundtracks of Downton Abbey, Encanto and Avatar. She will be First Light Festival 2023’s Musician in Residence playing across the weekend in The Coal Porters and with John and Lynne Ward, and will be in conversation with Veronica Sekules as part of From The Ground Up.
