Peter Groom Dance-Theatre I MADRE
"What if it's all or nothing? Created from a scratch performance whilst in residence at Battersea Arts Centre, the piece began as an exploration into working solo. Some of the questions asked were: blood ties, lament, mafia, and say goodbye.
Since it’s creation at BAC in 2014 , MADRE has toured to DanceCity, DanceBase, and will play later this year as part of Live Bites at Yorkshire Dance and also Turn, Manchester.
Performed by Peter Groom. Dramaturgy by Kai Green

"Sometimes we can sit next to someone, elbow-to-elbow, for a considerable period of time and only visually take into account their legs and feet.
Created and performed by: Joel O’Donoghue and Lorea Burge Badiola. The initial research process for this project was supported by The Place.

"An English and Brazilian share their personal and cultural identity with the audience and each other. With a selection of scenes being composed to a selection of songs, the audience are in control of what they see as they will be free to select and change the music as they wish from a playlist. Nós is inspired by the Tropicália movement where artists such as Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso would feed from artists of different cultures, digesting their work like a cultural cannibalism, allowing it to influence their own work."
