Blowin’ In The Wind
Daniel Phung’s new piece of dance theatre blurs the lines of ‘being a man’ and explores the male gender as a fluid social construct and the cultural clashes experienced by Daniel as a British-born East Asian male.
Crop Tops Make Me Feel Vulnerable
A dance about how I see my body; how others see my body; how I think that others see my body, and how others think I see my body.
I want him to like my hair
An ode to the obsessive and imaginative mind and a grand finale to a past heartbreak. This solo in three short scenes moves between subtlety and ridiculousness, humour and the tragic, narrative and absurdity, truth and lies.
Into Our Skies
Be transported to a fascinating world above our heads: sky, clouds, atmosphere, astronomy, mythology, crowns tossed into the sky to become stars. Hovering between dance and a live fine art painting, it’s a visual treat of glitter and helium filled balloons.
Akshay Sharma and Anne-Gaëlle Thiriot
The Drama of Hardness and Softness (working title)
The starting point of this research revolved around texture, painting, somatics, aestheticization of violence and systemic injustices, which have been made into physical scores.
Tamar & Jo
Unseen Beings is a series of three inter-connected dance duets performed by statuesqe figures clad in concealing, sheet-like costumes. Inspired initially by the work of 2017 Turner Prize winner Lubaina Himid, it looks at themes of what it means to be ‘unseen’. Each vignette explores different aspects of the theme through movement and contact work within the encompassing costume, at times tongue-in-cheek, at times gentle and sincere. All three sections will be performed consecutively for this event.
This is a solo piece exploring the commonality of different forms of religious practice and the choreography of devotion. Music composed by Marcos Mezza.
