PERFORMANCES

We value deep dialogue between performers and use the research and performance process to access the entire palette of each dancers personality and character, their rich stage experiences and complex

interpretations.

Opening up a room in which performers follow their own curiosity shapes the collective power of our pieces.

 

Our first full-length piece, Instant Journey, is a piece for 6 dancers, performance date Summer 2018. 

Instant Journey explores how moments of great personal and political change find their way into dance language. Its central theme, freedom of expression, weaves  biography and current  affairs  into  dramatic  and  moving theatrical experience.

How  does the  body  act  as  the  arbiter  for the  truth?  How does it transcend  imposed limits, expressing what  words  cannot?  How do  political repression and  information overload  show up in the body? What  role should bodies play in this new ´post-factual´ era of communication? 

 

 

 

 

Relationship can reinforce the illusion of separateness or provide a vehicle to fully offer our being. In this quartet, two couples explore the palette of human experience. How is the self co-created in relationship  to  the  other? Can we comfortably accommodate   the   polarities of attachment and separation, aggression and submission?
