the two of us
a sort of unison
Timber & Battery share 'Meaningless Dance 15 (Some Possibilities)' this Fiver Friday at 7:30pm in double bill with Gareth Cutter.
Utter East Looking at some of the sensory and related mental health challenges associated with neuro-diversity, and the ritualisation of coping strategies. A live collaboration between dance artist Kitty Fedorec and band Dogfeet. Utter East is story of compulsive behaviour, purification, addiction, tears and dragon skin.
Improve your body/disprove your body My Feminist Boner (Brighton Fringe preview) Make yourself hairless, fatless & snot-less. Be a calorie counter, an exerci...se freak & figure out how to contour. Sarah Blanc returns with her hilarious new solo show; join her as she tests a range of over the counter beauty contraptions, all designed for making the better you. This is the story of how the world helped Sarah grow her feminist boner. Caution- this show contains props, movement & a haiku from her younger Take That-loving self.

Don't miss "At the end we begin" on 3rd June!
"L"-After God created Adam, who was alone, He said, ‘It is not good for man to be alone.’ He then created a woman from the earth, as He had created Adam himself, and called her Lilith. Adam and Lilith immediately began to fight. She said, ‘I will not lie below,’ and he said, ‘I will not lie beneath you, but only on top. For you are fit only to be in the bottom position, while I am to be the superior one.’ Lilith responded, ‘We are equal to each other inasmuch as we were both ...created from the earth.’ But they would not listen to one another. When Lilith saw this, she pronounced the Ineffable Name and flew away into the air. – Alphabet of Ben Sira.
"Shared Memory"-A meditation of the leaving and arriving of our memories. This solo piece was created last summer during Shakti’s residency at Seoul Dance Centre in South Korea, where she researched about memory, traces and what remains, the work explores fragility and the capacity to share yourself trough your memories.
"TAG"See the world of the child play out and evolve through the eyes of adults. ‘Tag’ allows the dancers to channel the sometimes creative, often competitive and always challenging adult world into the playful and emotive games of children. Drawing parallels between how we once acted and how we act now, ‘Tag’ questions our own perceptions of fun and play versus the modern rat race. Ask yourself, are you actually making sense and being grown up?
