Avanti Display presents Full Circle

Nik Ditt.jpg

Bell Square, Hounslow High Street, Hounslow, London TW3 3HH

Saturday 14 September 2019

1pm & 3.30pm

Are they council workers or is it a piece of performance art? What began as a game now is starting to look a bit precarious. Where have they gone? Now what do we do?.............

Full Circle is a mischievous and experimental show from Avanti Display, that plays with the complicity between audience and performer. A slow and intriguing performance, the show builds gently through to suspense, hilarity and unforeseeable consequences. Just how many buckets do they need? Now it’s starting to look a bit precarious. That’s a lot of buckets!

Hayes Outdoor Festival Day

Botwell Green, Hayes, UB3 2HW

Sunday 11 August 2019

11am & 2pm

Hayes Outdoor is an exciting outdoor arts festival which brings top-quality free outdoor performances to the heart of Hayes. Launched in 2018, and featuring everything from circus to dance to music, the shows aim to delight and inspire people whether they’re 4 or 84.

This year, we’re running a spectacular FREE festival day on Botwell Green on Sunday 11 August. Featuring three outstanding acts, it promises to engage, entertain and inspire from the very youngest to the oldest!

Southpaw Dance Company- Icarus

A hybrid of choreography and puppetry allows the audience to experience the tale of Icarus first hand, complete with 16 foot wings that enable Icarus to soar through the skies. 

Ofir Yudilevitch- Gravitas

Gravity is one of the most basic and powerful forces in nature. It acts upon us and upon every physical object in the same way. This force defines the language we use in everyday life: Up-down, light-heavy, high art- low art, life- death. Gravity doesn’t care if we land or crash, it will remain the same. We take a moment to play with it. We become pure mass and try to surrender to its blind will.

Gravitas is a two man duet combining contemporary dance and acrobatics performed on an air floor mat. The piece questions ideas of manhood and boyhood; the two performers play recklessly with each other and the audience, trying to regain a sense of fearlessness that is usually lost in childhood.

Avanti Display- Full Circle

In 2019 events will take place on one FREE festival day, Sunday 11 August starting at 11am and 2pm. Running time to see all three shows is approximately 90 minutes. No need to book, just turn up and enjoy!

Cia Moveo presents Conseqüències

STRATFORD CIRCUS ARTS CENTRE, STRATFORD, LONDON, E15 1BX

Saturday 29 September 2018

12pm & 5pm

For a moment I stopped to listen, to watch, and the world around me kept on going. How can I find what I lost during these moments? The more I accelerate, the later I arrive, as if a strange force conspired against my presence in the time of others.

And you? What are you looking at?

Conseqüències is an ironic and joyful work on the possibility of being out of step, late, off the mark, and on the resulting consequences.

Conseqüències is a humorous dance performance that explores the boundaries between reality and fiction.

STRATFORD CIRCUS ARTS CENTRE, STRATFORD, LONDON, E15 1BX

Saturday 29 September 2018

5.30pm

D-Construction is a very fun and energetic hip-hop dance performance with an infectious beat.

In the middle of the space a huge and striking metal structure creates a playground, prison and place of expression. It protects and exposes. It holds and releases at the same time. It is a place of confrontation and inspiration. It connects, inspires and destroys to create something new.

Six dancers experience the liberation of the mind through movement. Merging into a group, they create a stronger entity; breaking apart, they assert their uniqueness. They interact with the metal scaffolding as it cages, protects and frees them at the very same time.

Ockham's Razor presents Belly of the Whale

   

  

Bell Square, Hounslow High Street, Hounslow, London TW3 3HH 

Saturday 8 September 2018

3pm

Hounslow residents - tell us what you think and get £20. The Bell Square programme wants to hear from local people about their views of Belly of the Whale. You need to be 16 or over, be happy to receive some information about the show in advance, able to watch the performance at 3pm on 8 September and then come to an informal discussion group at Hounslow Arts Centre the next day at 3pm. Expenses of £20 each available for everyone who watches the show and comes to the discussion. If you would like to take part contact sarah@sarahboilingassociates for more details.

Circulate Resident Artists Ockham’s Razor present their exciting first show made specifically for outdoors.

The performers, like surfers on a wild sea, ride a giant semi-circular see-saw made of wood and steel which creaks and groans as it transforms from a catapult, a gently rocking cradle, a tunnel, a slide - creating an ever-changing land and soundscape. 

The concept of the belly of the whale is found in mythology around the world - what happens when we confront our fears and come face to face with the power and momentum of things we seemingly can’t change? 

"there's something magical about Ockham's Razor" Evening Standard

“Britain’s most innovative aerial theatre group” Total Theatre 

“Ockham's Razor is a hugely promising young aerial company who don't just have superb circus skills, but also highly creative brains.” The Guardian 

Read Bell Square's Blog about Belly of the Whale

Ockham’s Razor are supported by Arts Council England.
Belly of the Whale is commissioned by Without Walls, Stockton International Riverside Festival, Greenwich + Docklands International Festival, Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Salisbury International Arts Festival, Circulate and Stratford Circus Arts Centre.

12pm & 3pm

For a moment I stopped to listen, to watch, and the world around me kept on going. How can I find what I lost during these moments? The more I accelerate, the later I arrive, as if a strange force conspired against my presence in the time of others.

And you? What are you looking at?

Conseqüències is an ironic and joyful work on the possibility of being out of step, late, off the mark, and on the resulting consequences.

Conseqüències is a humorous dance performance that explores the boundaries between reality and fiction.

Cie Dyptik presents D-Construction

   

  

Giffin Square, Deptford, London, SE8 4RJ

Saturday 18 August 2018

1pm & 4pm

D-Construction is a very fun and energetic hip-hop dance performance with an infectious beat.

In the middle of the space a huge and striking metal structure creates a playground, prison and place of expression. It protects and exposes. It holds and releases at the same time. It is a place of confrontation and inspiration. It connects, inspires and destroys to create something new.

Six dancers experience the liberation of the mind through movement. Merging into a group, they create a stronger entity; breaking apart, they assert their uniqueness. They interact with the metal scaffolding as it cages, protects and frees them at the very same time.

Ockham's Razor presents Belly of the Whale

   

  

Outside Enfield Town Library, 66 Church Street, Enfield, London EN2 6AX 

Thursday 16 August 2018

12.45pm & 3.30pm

Circulate Resident Artists Ockham’s Razor present their exciting first show made specifically for outdoors.


The performers, like surfers on a wild sea, ride a giant semi-circular see-saw made of wood and steel which creaks and groans as it transforms from a catapult, a gently rocking cradle, a tunnel, a slide - creating an ever-changing land and soundscape. 

The concept of the belly of the whale is found in mythology around the world - what happens when we confront our fears and come face to face with the power and momentum of things we seemingly can’t change? 

"there's something magical about Ockham's Razor" Evening Standard

“Britain’s most innovative aerial theatre group” Total Theatre 

“Ockham's Razor is a hugely promising young aerial company who don't just have superb circus skills, but also highly creative brains.” The Guardian 

Ockham’s Razor are supported by Arts Council England.
Belly of the Whale is commissioned by Without Walls, Stockton International Riverside Festival, Greenwich + Docklands International Festival, Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Salisbury International Arts Festival, Circulate and Stratford Circus Arts Centre.

HIGH POINT VILLAGE, STATION ROAD, HAYES UB3 4FE

Wednesday 15 August 2018

2.30pm & 6.30pm

A circus show ankle-deep in water? Why not! Two clowns step into the spotlight in this unusual show where a Chinese Pole becomes a flute, water turns into a drum, a guitar and banjo fearlessly face down whirlpools, and the stage...is filled with water. Île O will leave little ones and their parents in fits of laughter.
