Review of SBB's '41 Times' Performed by TU Dance: Big Dance Town

“41 Times” is a solemn and elegiac creation, as it must be. The dancers (who collaborated with Batten Bland in making the piece) performed with care and focus, as if they were keepers of Diallo’s spirit and the spirits of all who have been lost. The movement was wary, hands went up at times – but there was also an internal struggle laid bare, an attempt to break free of a horrific cycle. The work depicted a journey from despair into an opposite state – not really hope (that would be too simple) but a level of perseverance and determination to survive, despite the odds.
