This is a Black Improvisation by Alexah Tomey-Alleyne
Moving. Sweating. Whining. Slipping. Snaking. Locking. Popping. Experiencing. Bumping. Grinding. Twisting. Shaking. Slithering. Winding. Circling. Slapping.
This is a Black Improvisation.
This is Black Fashion.
This is Black Music.
This is Black Moving.
This is Black.
‘This is a Black Improvisation’ opens a space where the potentials of ‘blackness’ are limitless.
This performance is my blackness…
it imagines and then reimagines my blackness.
Inscribed in “Me” performed and devised by Alethia Antonia
This is a space for…
the imprint of experience
the inscription of trauma
the reading and rewriting of self
This is a space where…
“I” enter and exit
“I” say and “I” listen
“I” search within a palimpsest
“I” let you see “me”
Flip-Flop by Steph and Louisa
Steph is a comedian and Louisa is a dancer, and in this brand new show they explore the relationship between these two disciplines. They’ve spent the last few months teaching each other their respective skills, and working out the relationship between jokes and movement. Can a pirouette be a punchline? Can Steph shake it with the best of them? Can Louisa tell a joke? Well yes, obviously. They’re amazing people.
This Incoherent Body by Jake Daniels
This Incoherent Body, is simply me and my take on being and moving, using my practice, often I am passively engaging with the world we encompass through watching, looking, feeling and listening, feeling some more and thinking but how does that translate into physically figuring out shit.
Our bodies are passively connected to the ground in which we walk the landscapes which enclose us, connected through change, internally, externally, through a yearning, we exist in various places on, in and beyond our bodies. Our fluidly morphing body’s wilt and rise, melt and bloom through watery strength and crumbling foundation. we are coherently incoherent.
Seperated at Birth by Zoe Katsilerou
Separated in Birth is a piece that plays with the idea of the womb as the first place where all humans lived, as a means of discussing the similarities between us, and a collaboration between Zoe, Eilon Morris (actor-musician, composer and independent scholar) and Judith Adams (writer).Back to all events
