BOOK NOW! link

Trip the Light | Intercontinental Drifts is a monthly platform (February-July 2016) where cutting edge choreography from across Europe and the UK meet. A night of new moves, new waves and new choreographic terrain.

Each night presents a host of juicy dance works topped off with a band to get up and split your jeans to. Sit back, be immersed, then exorcise your demons on the dance floor.




Those patterns which come with sense of comfort and safety - do we need them? What about the complex coexistence we could become acquainted with, without them?

Performance by Celina Liesegang and Simea Cavelti
Music by: Raphael Heggendorn
Choreographic Mentor: Irina Lorez
Supported by The Bull Theatre

Simea Cavelti and Celina Liesegang are a creative duo based between London and Bern, and recently won the Tankstelle 2016 award for ‘Put, Aggregated’. Heavily inspired by Swiss artist Jean-Claude Tinguely, their work seeks to be perceived in the same way as one might observe the inside workings of a clock.


S/HE is a work in progress. S/HE started with a concern for men and the questions 'do men need feminism?' and 'does feminism need men?'. Entering in to the research the intention was to make a piece about gender. Currently, S/ HE is emerging as a performance about the complexity of human co existence.

PETER ŠAVEL & TEREZA ONDROVÁ present Boys Who Like To Play With Dolls

Welcome to a fantasy world in which masculinity and femininity are unrelated to male and female physical forms. Two distinctive, compelling European dancers, morph from one body to another, attacking the conventions, norms and clichés of gender. Movement and dance become an expression of the contrast between the identity of body and soul, and between genetic givens and social prejudices, attempting to challenge the various social stereotypes and explore the theme of gender in a language of pure physicality. European Top 20 Priority Companies 2014 selected by Aerowaves.
