Programme

9 Minutes, Jorge Crecis 

Modern life is geared to put us into autopilot. How often does it feel that our lives are slipping past without us even being aware of the time? 9 Minutes uses movement, words, and music to highlight that, for all we know, we might be dead by tomorrow; we only live once, and it is happening now! 9 Minutes is a multidisciplinary piece including three episodes of dance, three of circus arts and three of spoken theatre: nine intersecting stories depicting the last nine-minutes of nine different characters’ lives in a mind-bending exploration of the power of being alive. Jorge Crecis will build the complete piece as a unique creative experiment throughout the academic year 2018-2019 by working with: EDGE, RADA and NCCA.

Sea of Details, Hagit Yakira 

In my search of ways to make movement visible - to reveal and highlight some hidden details - I have found that repetition opens up a universe of endless possibilities, subtle variations and developments. This piece is about the discoveries my dancers and I made this piece while exploring this idea in the studio. Though the piece negotiates the aesthetic of repetition it also displays the humanistic aspects of it. Life is repetition, but there is beauty in the details - waiting for you to discover.

Me, My Selfie and I, Fabio Liberti

When taking your Selfie

- Flattering light is essential.

- The face is important, know your best angle.

- Pout a little. Pouting deepens the lines of your cheekbone and makes your lips look fuller.

- The focus should be intense but not too provocative.

- Take extra care when choosing your outfit.

- If you take a Selfie from above, it will appear as someone else has taken it for you. Then you will look like a person who is not too vain. This is important.

- Once the Selfie has been taken choose wisely which filter to apply. A filter that removes the flaws.

Our favourite filter is Sierra. Our favourite filter is Sierra. Our favourite filter is Sierra.
