WISE MAN | Charlie Dixon Dance Company


Technical rehearsal @ Arts Theatre, London.

Wise Man is the current work of CDDC exploring the themes of Charles Darwin’s theories of natural selections and a fight for survival.

This highly demanding animalistic piece is full of energy but with many hidden details and extremely technical qualities to explore. Manipulating the body to create newfangled visually pleasing material, pushing limits to the max with explosive bodily movement. Five fierce dancers journey for a fight for existence, how species intertwine and relationships develop.

CDDC is a dynamic contemporary dance company based in London, under the artistic direction and choreography of Charlie Dixon.

New to the dance scene CDDC has a great desire to create a newfangled style, with five astounding dancers facilitating the human body to the maximum; creating physical high powered movement, vibrant articulation all with hidden intricate detail.

BRUTE | Tom Bowes Dance


Technical rehearsal @ Arts Theatre, London.

BRUTE follows four peculiar characters who delve into the uncertainty of the unknown. They displace the ordinary and hoard past happenings. Ensnared by animal qualities and human desires, Brute makes inquiries into decision and discovery.

Tom Bowes Dance is a newly developed collective that presents the creative work of Tom Bowes. Their work emerges through collaboration, chance and play, ultimately providing quality contemporary dance performance.

The Mudhead Dance | Adam James

The performance hopes to scratch in the dirt

The performance hopes to celebrate the forgotten

The performance hopes to bring the outsider inside

The performance hopes to stir-up the sediment

The performance hopes to soak up the gravy

The performance hopes to upturn the skip

The Mudhead Dance is inspired by past and present ideas of shamanism, sacred ritual and the role of sacred clowns (or ‘Mudheads’ of the Pueblo Indian culture).

The project has two outcomes: a live filming event that public audiences can share in the spectacle of at V22 Workspace in Bermondsey (where these photos were taken) and the screening of the finished film itself at various venues around London and the UK.

Dave, Michael, Tracy, John, Sofie, Fred and the others

Title: Dave, Michael, Tracy, John, Sofie, Fred and the others – Bonnie Bird Theatre, Trinity Laban.
Choreography: Emma Zangs
Performers: Diina Bukareva, Danell Nelson, Marta Ucinska, Mariana Lucia Marquez, Natasha Cesco G., Runa Kaiser, Apostolos Gkoumas.

This dance piece is asking the question of: ‘What is an original piece?’.
Using previously created movements, the piece enhances the fact that creating a choreography does not start necessarily with the creation of movement but with the act of editing.  Beg, borrow or steal.

ReBodied by Diina Bukareva

Title: ReBodied (at Studio Theatre)
Choreography: Diina Bukareva
Performer: Runa Larsen
Lights: Gregor Knüppel

The memory is shared; it is not personal, neither objective. It is re-lived, not re-done. Perceptional recollection is not necessarily truthful. Everything can be imagined. If it is not true to me, it could still be true to you.
