About

Alex Cecchetti with Pauline Simon, Conversation of the Arrows, Grand Union (6.30pm & 8.15pm)

Conversation of the Arrows by Alex Cecchetti is a choreography for sorcerer’s apprentices, in which a dancer and a word-crafter fall into the trap of representation. They are doomed to chase each other represented as dogs, arrows, birds, stones, stars. For a moment, Cecchetti’s sculptures, become the spells that the apprentices cast against each other and the scenario for their labyrinthic roaming.  

Hagar Tenenbaum, Abstraction end and things like that, Nicholson School of Dance (7.30pm)

Hagar Tenenbaum works with text and hand gestures to create a relation between words and movement that allows these forms to have distinct trajectories. They can synchronise and resist each other at different moments during the performance. Every action is titled and described minimally, allowing her movement to find its way between accumulated words, stories, memories and facts. This poses a challenge to the moving body to stay receptive, attentive and at the same time, independent.
