‘Seventy Six Steps’ – An ArtHouse Jersey Dance commission for Liberation 76

An extraordinary ArtHouse Jersey commission, a Liberation 76 dance piece ‘Seventy Six Steps’. Carolyn Rose Ramsay, a Jersey-based dancer from Ballet Nacional de Cuba, Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, and the Norwegian National Ballet, set about enlisting five talented local dancers to create a one-off piece telling the stories of people who lived through the Occupation, armed with audio testimony that ArtHouse Jersey collected during research conducted for the Face of Liberation project last year.

Shot by Submarine Creative across various locations around the Island, the piece is set to music and overlaid with voices from various Occupation survivors, capturing the authentic sentiments and experiences of those who experienced firsthand this troubling time in Jersey’s history.

  1. This balletic piece combines so many of the qualities of Jersey and tells of its darkest days in a literally moving way.

  2. a fabulous melange of artistic pieces. The narrative underscoring the photography and the dance, not forgetting the music. A gorgeous piece.
