Programme 1 | Friday 9 February | 7:30pm



Daniele Ninarello creates an uninterrupted flow of movements in dialogue with a live soundscape played by Dan Kinzelman, mixing improvised music with voice and saxophone. Kudoku, a duet between two highly skilled artists explores the physical and sonic expression of the body, the visible traces it leaves in time and space. Daniele Ninarello’s hypnotic moves will slowly wipe your gaze clean and bring you to a state of peace.

Choreographer / performer: Daniele Ninarello
Musician: Dan Kinzelman (tenor sax, percussion and electronics)

‘electrifying in its unification of physical and musical space’ - Nadja Bozovic, Aerowaves Springback


with no name

Bounce, hold, 3 arms and 4 legs, shift….
‘with no name’ is a visceral collage, inspired by the ambiguities of the body. Influenced by the detour-strategies of the female surrealists, the necessity to shake it up arises. Artificial textures, swelling briskly inside your darkest everything, resonating, shining through - an assembly of hallucinatory physicalities of otherness.

Choreographer / Performer: Isabella Oberländer. Soundtrack by Mark Leckey, remixed by Robin Parmar.



Oscillate explores the natural rhythms of the body, the acts of breathing, blinking, pumping blood through our veins. It invites the audience to contemplate how we experience time beyond the hard-external clock. Oscillate is a duet performed by dancers Marion Cronin and Lucia Kickham. In it they explore disjointed timelines of events and temporal displacement. Fragmented frames of dance material are set alongside flowing sequences of movement, enlarging and contracting the time-space of the performers. Gestures are magnified, and bodies spun across the floor before they again find their resting pace.

Choreographer: Lucia Kickham
Performers: Marion Cronin, Lucia Kickham

‘My heart rate noticeably slowed at times, and my breath mirrored the rhythms I was processing’ - Áine, DRAFF


Folds of the Crane

"60 degrees north. 100 degrees east. In the psychic black, I know you from before I'm sure, I'm sure, I'm sure, I'm sure ..." Folds of the Crane is a cinematic, movement theatre piece inspired by black holes, flick books and multiplicities of the self. Drawn by light, coloured by sound, through the window of the body - a feeling of moving whilst standing still.

Choreographer/performer: Justine Cooper

‘a piece of dance that is as memorable as it is powerful’ - Stephen McDermott, No More Work Horse
