Optional entry donations (and intake from the bar) will kindly support the dancers' development through participation in Deltebre Dansa Festival and Addo Dance Platform this summer.We hope to see you there! ---"The Shape Of" by Claire Pritchard: What is the scaffolding of my experience? What lies beyond it? If I reach outside the bars, if I hang over the edge of the frame, if I abandon the structure, what will I find? 'The Shape Of' is about being present in the here and now. It is about questioning our limits, and chasing fullness of life. The Shape Of is about being free. What is shaping your life?---"Duvet Day" by C&O Dance: Bed: cosy, safe, haven of rest.Bed: Day portrays an intimate struggle with depression. Lying in bed for hours on end, in a state of complete isolation and mental weariness, can make it feel like a prison. Personal experiences of depression, enhanced by research, fueled a physical exploration of the condition. Incorporating props locates the piece within the familiar landscape of bed. Duvet Day reveals the trajectory of a depressive episode, through embodiment and evocative imagery. Performance will be followed by a Q&A and a discussion with audience."A cosy, relaxing image of a duvet day is shattered by an unapologetically honest and raw snapshot into how a bed can become a place of restlessness, discomfort and struggle." - Zoe Nugent ---"Atmospheric Soundscapes" is a live electronic music set performed by Thomas Jefferson to facilitate ensuing conversations.
