Kate Hilder and Seke Chimutengwende improvise with movement, voice and language. They perform without any pre-planned structure or theme, preferring to find both in the moment of performance. Their duets encompass storytelling, humour and abstract expressionism.
This performance is part of the first week of Kate's Percolate Residency at Dance Limerick where they will be developing their solo and duet improvisation performance practice.
Kate Hilder is a physical theatre practitioner and Feldenkrais teacher who teaches and performs across Europe. She moved to Ireland from the UK two years ago and teaches dance and voice students at the University of Limerick.
Seke Chimutengwende is a dance-artist, choreographer and teacher based in London. He has performed with companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre, Lost Dog and Fabulous Beast.
Seke and Kate met in 2006 and have performed together in London, Berlin, Gothenburg, Brighton and Hastings. They have both been profoundly influenced by Ruth Zaporah's work: Action Theater ™ and Andrew Morrish's teaching.
This event is free of charge.
