Performed as part of LODDO, 'Occupied' was originally created by John Ross whilst training at London Contemporary Dance School, which he then developed into his full length work 'Wolfpack'. The piece is about the bathroom antics in a nightclub on a big night out, all the banter, the comradery, the loutishness.... The orginal piece only featured men, but for this performance, Sophie collaborated with John to add the women's movement to make this final performance.

Performed: September 2nd, 2015
