BA3 Commissioned WorksLive Performances / Events

23rd October 2014 - 24th October 2014


£6 (£4 concs)


Final year students on the BA (Hons) Contemporary Dance programme at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance present four works by commissioned artists Lizzi Kew Ross, Naomi Lefebvre Sell, Struan Leslie and Anna Williams. The pieces are the result of intensive rehearsal periods, during which students experience the particular creative working processes adopted by each of the choreographers. The project challenges the students and often takes them into areas of performance that they have not encountered before.

Following these premiere performances at Laban Theatre, the students will tour the pieces to venues across London and further afield.

££20


Theo Clinkard is a Brighton-based choreographer, dancer, teacher and theatre designer. Following 17 years performing internationally in work by some of the UK’s most celebrated choreographers, he has spent the last 2 years initiating his own choreographic practice and on forming his 7-strong company in 2012, received invitations to become Resident Artist at Greenwich Dance and Associate Artist at Dance4.

This professional development day is a chance for dance artists and teachers to explore Theo’s choreographic ideas and the themes of his new performance work "Of Land and Tongue" created earlier this year. Participants will be led through an enjoyable and rigorous class before spending the day gaining insight into the work as well as having time to explore, create and play with their own ideas in a nurturing and informal environment.

Theo Clinkard presents Chalk & Of Land and TongueLive Performances / Events

6th November 2014


££12 / £10 conc


An evening of startling and eloquent dance that places the audience right at the heart of the action

A rare and breathtaking experience for an audience of just 60 who frame the stage…Clinkard’s double-bill shifts from nuanced and detailed dance to visceral and kinetic physicality that rips across the floor at your very feet…

“… mesmerising, I could have watched them both straight over again" – Actor, Ben Whishaw

“I can’t remember the last time I felt so cared for as an audience member” – Eleanor Sikorski, Bellyflop Magazine

Inspiration for Chalk, a stark and poetic duet that sees Clinkard joined by a live score from composer James Keane, comes from the huge eroding cliffs of Clinkard’s hometown. Of Land And Tongue follows; a compelling quintet created for a remarkable cast of performers; an accumulation of untranslatable words acting as a springboard for a piece that pulses with sensations and experiences.

“… a sure touch of class” – Dance Writer, Critic Graham Watts (on Ordinary Courage)

Rahel Vonmoos and Marina Collard Double Bill: shall i sit here/Still GoingLive Performances / Events

6th November 2014


£16 (£12 concs)


Still Going is a solo performance created by Marina Collard with a film projection by Tom Paine. After a number of attempts to change activity, Marina is reluctant to leave dance behind. In Still Going, she is not sure if, or why she is trying to retire. Drawn back time and again, undecided, unsettled and awkwardly suspended, both Marina and Tom are inevitably left hovering.

Created and performed by Rahel Vonmoos shall i sit here is a layered presentation of recorded and live performance which integrates film, text, light and shadow and celebrates the physicality and simplicity of the performing body. It uses projection to create texture in space in which ideas about distance (temporal and spatial), duration and memory are played out.

The development of this work was also prompted by Rahel's desire to involve elements of personal experience as a woman and mother - but these autobiographical elements can be understood in a wider public sense, as autobiographical to many.

Gravity & Levity: Rites of WarLive Performances / Events

11th November 2014


£16 (£12 concs)


‘No. 1 Dance show to see this month’ Time Out London (May ’14)

‘Brutally clear-eyed… Bhuller and Butcher are fine choreographers’ The Guardian

This passionate and moving aerial dance performance has been described by audiences as ‘captivating’, ‘dumbfounding’ and ‘visually stunning’: six dancers literally shift your perspective with breathtaking skill.

From the trenches of World War 1 to the streets of present-day Afghanistan, the impact of war on the lives of ordinary men and women is powerfully told through beautifully crafted choreography - both on the stage and in the air - fused with film, poetry, music and news commentary.

For over a decade, Gravity & Levity has been at the forefront of aerial dance performance in the UK. For Rites of War, Artistic Director Lindsey Butcher collaborates with acclaimed choreographer Darshan Singh Bhuller and longtime BBC war reporter David Loyn. The result is a rich tapestry of striking imagery that will leave indelible marks on the mind.

Duration: 65 minutes | For ages 12+
Rites of War is supported by Arts Council England through the National Lottery

Raimund Hoghe: Pas de DeuxLive Performances / Events

27th November 2014


£18 (£12 concs)


The pas de deux, a symbol of accomplished form and technique, is one of the most emblematic figures of classical ballet – and in its very own way the duet by Raimund Hoghe and the Japanese dancer Takashi Ueno is a virtuoso performance as well. What separates and what unites us?

In Pas de Deux, the first glance, the first movement remains constantly present, when the two dancers almost unnoticeably open up their worlds: their different ages, different bodies, journeys through life, recollections. Between introspection and the wealth of gestures in the history of dance, a movement dialogue develops. Approaching one another and repeatedly seeking distance, they play out the moment of encounter in ever new variants and nuances, slip into ever new roles for one another, with one another or alone, explore ever new possibilities of their relationship and also of their own view of themselves.

Pas de Deux is a pas de deux in which Raimund Hoghe develops his unmistakeable choreographic language and opposes the spectacular with poetry and an impressive attention to the human.

Presented by the Greenwich Dance and Trinity Laban Partnership.
