Levantes Dance Theatre

Levantes Dance Theatre was established in 2005 by Eleni Edipidi and Beth Harrison. Together, they create visually stunning, innovative work, that often sits on the boundary of definition, spanning multiple disciplines, from their background in contemporary dance theatre, to visual art and circus.

As Circulate resident artists, based at The Albany in Deptford, their new project, tentatively titled 'Parlour',  is currently in development. Billed as an "outdoor walkabout", this participatory performance show will involve a wide range of performers, and focus on interactions and engagement with participants from the local community.

Levantes has developed a strand of practice called 'Canape Community' which has brought the duo together with local people to make public participatory work in a different way. The host venues collective ambition for Circulate as a project provide the perfect platform for them to continue with this work. With every Levantes project comes new people and new costumes, and they are excited about getting started and seeing where it takes them!

As a South London company, we have always known The Albany, and we've loved getting closer to the wonderful venue and the people who work there. The Albany keep people at the heart of the work they support and we can't wait to be a part of that with Circulate.
