BE THERE AT THE START OF NEW THEATRE AND DANCE IN DEVELOPMENT.
Practice gives artists and audiences the opportunity to come together to test new and innovative contemporary performance in development. Four extracts of work in progress, selected by application, are followed by a lively exchange of views that aims to open up the making process and contribute to the development of the work.
The performances will be followed by a POST SHOW DISCUSSION with the artists.
Practice is a partnership between Edge Arts and Salisbury Arts Centre. This season’s Practice will be held at The Edge, University of Bath
DELICIA SEFIHA – THE UNNAMABLE
Inspired by Samuel Beckett’s “The Unnamable”, this solo is a monologue of an unknown narrator with an inability to stop speaking, vainly trying to define what he is and reach what seems an impossible place, silence. This piece plays around with the ideas of defining one’s self, of being trapped in an endless situation and of the forces that make life go on…
Delicia Sefiha is a contemporary dance theatre performer and choreographer, focusing on fluid yet fractured, essential yet absurdly provoking choreography through interpretation of literary works. How can an idea, a statement, an emotion, put in words so nicely, be translated and come to life through movement?
AMY FOSKETT – THROUGH THE COTTONGRASS
Inspired by the Swedish folk story, “Princess Cottongrass”; A mythical story taken form in a confusing battle of a scary reality or a creepy dream. This duet is set within the forest of the mind, looking into the loneliness and confusing journey of a young girl who finds herself lost and forever searching.
Amy trained at Trinity Laban graduating in 2014 and currently teaches Contemporary classes at the New London Performing Arts Centre. After leaving Laban, Amy danced for Hannah Vincent Dance Company for resolutions 15 and foot print festival 15.
SALAH EL BROGY – GLITCH
‘Memory only exists when it is recalled…’ says visual artist Alice Anderson. But what happens when you recall these memories and they don’t exist? Glitch looks into the state of mind when you can’t access your own memories.
Salah’s choreography draws inspiration from his Egyptian, African, Middle Eastern heritages and wide variety of dance disciplines along with the strong improvisation and Extemporaneous dance style.
