Kin

KIN is the forthcoming new show from award winning Gecko Theatre.

Co-commissioned by National Theatre, this is our 8th full length stage production and our biggest and most ambitious project to date. Exploring universally significant central themes of migration, family, racism and empathy in Gecko’s highly physical and expressive style, the show will tour UK in 2022 and play at National Theatre in 2023.

The Meaning of Zong

A new play by written by and starring Giles Terera (Hamilton), which tells the story of pioneer abolitionist Olaudah Equiano and his response to a massacre aboard the slave ship Zong in 1783. I’m working as sound designer and co-composer with exceptional griot musician and composer Sidiki Dembele, originally from Ivory Coast.

The show will open at Bristol Old Vic in April and tour to Edinburgh Lyceum and Liverpool Everyman.

Carmen

A new full length dance piece by director and choreographer Didy Veldman, starring Natalia Osipova in the title role and featuring acclaimed dancers Isaac Hernández and Jason Kittelberger.

I’ve created a new recorded score weaving together my arrangements of themes from Bizet’s classic opera with original music.

 

The show premiered in Edinburgh in 2021 will play at South Bank Centre London on 27th & 28th May 2022.

 

**** Mark Brown (The Telegraph)
“Like the piece’s excellent design elements, Price’s fabulously diverse score (which ranges from jazz to smart innovations on Bizet) puts itself at the service of a potent and erotic choreography.”

 

**** Kelly Apter (The Scotsman)
Composer Dave Price does an excellent job blending his own modern sound with Bizet’s iconic score.

Arts Council Funding

I’m absolutely thrilled to have received a Developing Your Creative Practice award from Arts Council England.

This will enable me to take time to focus on improving my production skills and develop new approaches to composition and performance using Ableton Live.
