Between Horses is an ongoing solo project that Tora started in 2016. It looks into the moment when familiarity becomes disturbed and new patterns are needed.
Tora Hed is an independent choreographer and dancer from Sweden, based in Leeds since 2012. She graduated from Northern School of Contemporary Dance 2015 and received the Carolyn Woolridge Outstanding Performance Award. Tora has made works from solo to extended pieces, collaborated with other dance, music and filmmakers across the UK and Europe.
The Dawn comprises the notion of time and the shift between dawn and twilight. It portrays time standing still, in a state of solitude, and it exhibits human life in its state of flow, evolution and movement. We explore ways of seeing and perceiving the world.
Sketch of a Sketch
Using detailed and eloquent movement to form captivating relationships within a subtle, entrancing duet. Sketch of a Sketch builds, shifts and tests the sensitivity in the room, an experience which evolves, creating connections alongside the performers.
Where you see me
Where you see me is a solo excerpt from a work in development that is rooted in Improvisation Research. The work is playful and free flowing, reflecting the process in which it was conceived and created. The solo gives the viewer a flavour of the movement vocabulary explored whilst focusing on habitual patterning and the construction of the body in space. The intention of the solo is to begin to explore how the abstraction of the body effects the viewers semiotic reading of the human form.
Diogo and Carl
How Far Can We Go?
How Far Can We Go? is the first duet choreographed by Carl Aquilizan and Diogo Santos. It explores a brotherly relationship based on own personal experiences and memories. Memories of play and fight, of falling and picking each other up, learning from each other, taking care of each other and love shown through actions. The piece explores the theme of growing up with siblings and growing apart. Wishing you could face everything together, but accepting that it all ends somewhere. One day you have to face the world on your own.
It’s Not Me, It’s You
It’s Not Me, It’s You explores the concept of love and how varied it’s perception is. This dance theatre performance is inspired by the pressures of modern city life, through the work highlighting how physically close we are to one another but so emotionally distant through play with space.
Set to an original score by Lukehurst himself, The Tides takes a look at the 7 stages of grief, the silver linings and implications that it holds for all those involved. Lukehurst explores this through high physicality, choreography and his own original musical composition. Only the first 4 sections of this performance will be shown tonight.
TIP is a short solo choreography created by allowing my bodies weight to be the main influence guiding the generation, development and structuring of the movement. Throughout the piece there are flourishes of movement learnt from previous training in Tricking, Breaking and Parkour.
Tom Dunn and Travis Robinson
This piece is a duet that explores the space between street and contemporary. It fuses the stylistic qualities of the two and encompasses the aural structure to create a new hybrid movement language that we have called ALPHA.Back to all eventsBack to Friday Firsts
