Charles Linehan Company

Rigorously choreographed and densely atmospheric, Charles Linehan’s work explores the terrain and psychology of the performers with calibrated ambiguity. Working with simplicity and detail, his performances feature a wide range of sonic experimentation and often respond to the unique environment of each performance setting. Charles Linehan sees dancing-making as a deeply personal, gestural and life-affirming act.

The Fault Index

  • Duration:
  • People on road: 7
  • Freight: No freight necessary


The Fault Index is a celebration of isolated events, a series of connected and unconnected episodes presented in a different order for each performance.

The Clearing

  • Duration:
  • People on road: 6
  • Freight: No freight necessary


Slow transformations evolve within a complex weave of interlocking melodies, off-rhythms and beautiful sonorities, in a sonic and lighting environment unique to the setting of each venue.

With a commissioned score from Richard Skelton.

Inventions for Radio

  • Duration:
  • People on road: 4
  • Freight: No freight necessary


Charles Linehan's duet hangs and scoops through the space, evoking a dark buoyancy. Inspired by Delia Derbyshire’s sometimes terrifying recording of reassembled interview footage about people’s dreams, Inventions for Radio uses the recurrent themes of water, colour and falling.
