Rebecca Mackenzie and Seke Chimutengwende come together once again for a double bill of completely improvised half hour solos. Through a spontaneous flow of events, they create characters, landscapes and narratives, sometimes expressed through words, sometimes through movement. Every solo is different as they find both the structure and theme in the moment of performance.

He has performed for companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre and Lost Dog and has performed his own solo improvisation work internationally since 2006. He performs ensemble improvisation with Neat Timothy and teaches improvisation internationally.For his company Seke Chimutengwende & Friends he has choreographed four works including The Time Travel Piece for The Place Prize 2012 and King Arthur, which premiered at The Yard Theatre in 2015. Seke is currently researching two new pieces: Black Holes, a duet in collaboration with Alexandrina Hemsley and a group piece Mass, Material and Disturbance.
