Out of the System – Mixed Bill

22 - 23 October

Turning their gaze on society through four highly personal short dance works

Turning their gaze on society through four highly personal short works, the artists in our OotS Mixed Bill intrigue with physicality, lyricism, surreal visuals and experimental sound.

In Exhibit F, Becky Namgauds gives an authoritative performance in which she bares and reclaims herself, confronting ideas around control and submission of the female body. The male form is the intimate focus of Thēo Inart’s solo Fragility in Man, alive with telling symbolism and visual storytelling.

Collaborating in Beyond Words, Ffion Campbell-Davies and tyroneisaacstuart call on their exploration of dance, sound, music and authenticity to question how humans converse. And to close, hip-hop theatre legend Jonzi D revives his modern classic Aeroplane Man, a cathartic quest for identity and belonging.
