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
