Quotation marks (1)

Trace by Mara Vivas

Inspired by photographer Jon Crispin’s Willard Asylum Suitcase project, the piece explores memory and it’s impact on perception of space. A woman navigates the familiar, sometimes recalling long-buried experiences.



Contemplating distraction by Rosa Manzi Reid

In creating the piece the dancers improvised with the concept of distraction. Distracted mind, distracted movements.




Chance by Giulia Tacconi

A search for the most interesting and satisfying moments of surprise when the body creates new actions, gestures and feelings.




The Inter Pares Project by Julie Havelund and Agnese Lanza

A duet about simplicity and reality that draws on the architecture and the audience to make each performance site-specific and unique.




The Body Canvas by Julie Schmidt Andreasen and Paul Vernon

A painter, drawer, filmmaker, and dancers move through a series of structured meetings, developing communication and expression.

The culmination of months of laboratories is both a fictional piece and a documentary.


Urban constellations by Fenia Kotsopoulou

Urban constellations explores the different relationships between urban space & body, movement & camera, colour & time, inner rhythm & music revealing the hidden forces and common elements interconnected in one combination.



Skin flaps by Bea Bonafini

Ebb and flow by Laura Elias
