Dave Young is a creative artist, poet, composer and performer, he is pleased to be invited back to PDSW to do poetic reviews for this season’s dance performances, following a good reception to his poetic responses at the Integrated Dance Summit in May. Here he reviews Zoielogic’s ‘Safe’

‘Safe’ by ZoieLogic Dance Theatre

A poetic response by David Young


Men at work.

Men working,

A building Site,

A garage.

A building Site.

But back in the old days,

Working, taking risks.

Physical Dance, in the bar, building as a team.

Fast at times but slow too.


Building up and up and up.

Sitting down for a cuppa.

Falling down and down and down.

Falling for eternity.

Building for eternity.

But at the end of it all?

A work of art.

The Empire State building.

And ‘Safe’ by ZoieLogic.
