KNIGHTS Radical Dance Company
OF THE INVISIBLE
Iona Kewney and Joseph Quimby are a scottish duo. She is a contortionist and dancer and has worked for Alain Platel and Wim Vandekeybus among others. He is a musician and singer. Both are based in Glasgow and are performing since twenty years together a kind of extreme and very fragile shit.
From the majestic to the obscene, Iona Kewney puts flesh to the test. She explores the bodys movement from pure internal fragility to its extreme limits, which she poses as a condition for survival.
They can perform in theaters, concert halls or clubs.

I witnessed the suffocating intensity of Iona Kewney and could barely speak afterwards - a feral, mesmerising performance somewhere between dance, improvisation and ritual.
THE GUARDIAN. Andy Feld.
Iona is awesome- there's No denying it. Her physical, visceral, shamanic performance is an extraordinary blend of contemporary circus and Radical dance.
TOTAL THEATRE. London. 2015.
'She not only has control over her body, but the space she inhabits. This moment is declaration of control: within this space Kewney is Everything'.
THE DOUBLE NEGATIVE Magazine. UK.
Loud and fast a single body pushing beyond extremes, a celebration of possibility founded on immaculate technique, Iona is Butoh in expression if not in detail, a profound attempt to make the invisible visible.
She covers unknown ground and forces the audience to gather their own responses. Iona is for the HARD CORE.
