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

Ockham’s Razor are supported by Arts Council England.

Lance Moi En l'Air is about the sensitivity and connection between two people which brings about compatible contradictions.

Can we be strong whilst relaxed? Heavy whilst light, grounded whilst levitated, submissive whilst in control, a mixture of strength and weakness? Can we be dropped into the air?

Humanity emerges and acrobatic prowess speaks between bodies. In a mixture of abandonment and accountability this piece is sensitive, where bodies just fit together.

Using their trademark mix of digital projections, live painting and performance, Insectotropics presents The Legend of the Burning Man, which tells the story of Mohammed Bouazizi, who sparked the Arab Spring when he set himself on fire in protest at the authorities in Tunisia.  The show examines the spread of news across the internet, how social media offers partial and self-interested perspectives, and how public opinion and feelings are manipulated. Who controls what we believe?

The Legend of the Burning Man is a poetic journey, based on real events, created to answer a big question of our time: If we are all on the web, who is the spider?

Come together in this fun, lively event where you create a huge structure made out of wooden sticks. Once the hard work is done, you can explore your creation by walking under, around and through it!
 
A bridge between contemporary art and performance, Steli is a stunning, interactive and colourful performance.
 
Steli is the result of an educational and performative project called Reaction, created in collaboration with the Education Department of Castello di Rivoli – a contemporary art museum in Italy.

NoFit State Circus and Motionhouse present BLOCK

38062860081_3c9b7b0d8c_o.jpg

High Point Village, Station Road, Hayes UB3 4FE

Wednesday 4 July 2018

2.30pm & 6.30pm

BLOCK is a powerful fusion of dance and circus that pushes the limits of both art forms. With its daring physicality, split-second timing and thrilling feats, BLOCK leaves audiences gasping.

What happens when dance and circus collide? When they converge, rub against each other, blend into one another?

Twenty over-sized blocks are deconstructed and reformed into an infinite variety of shapes for the performers to play on, move with and explore.  BLOCK is about life in the city; its contradictions and challenges.

Cie Dyptik presents D-Construction

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

Saturday 30 June 2018

3pm & 9.30pm

D-Construction is a thrilling 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.
 
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.
