A Place to Fall to Pieces

You are on an island. It is sinking. It is not a metaphor, nor a dream. It is the end. But how can you drown, when you haven’t a place to lay your bones? And when you don’t know where it is, how can anyone bring you home? With original composition, spoken word, storytelling and song, Isobel and Anna take you on a lyrical journey through memory, magic and earth as they seek the indelible mark our country leaves on us, and where the permanence of home truly lies.Originally streamed from Space.org.uk, London.isobelandannahughes.ukwww.facebook.com/APlacetoFalltoPieceswww.instagram.com/aplacetofalltopieces Watch Trailer

Performance is a metaphor and allegory of the world we live in, of interconnections, of incommunicability. We live in the era of global communication, but it has never been so difficult to be understood. We do not listen with the intention of understanding, but with the intention of answering. In empathic listening, the situation is reversed: ears are used, but also eyes and heart.

Shattered

In third grade, Diana kicked her crush in the crotch and her love life didn’t improve from there. What starts as an innocent look into her relationship past, turns into a comedic and heartbreakingly raw exploration of dating, dysfunction, and sexual devastation - told through the voices of 35 characters. Using comedy to take us through tragedy, Shattered ultimately tells the tale of one individual picking up the broken pieces of herself and learning to live again. ‘A woman of 1,000 faces’ (SplashMags.com). ‘Truly epic’ (NoHoArtsDistrict.com). ‘A real tour-de-force’ **** (BouquetsBrickbatsReviews.com). ‘A raw, visceral dissection of the human psyche’ ***** (BroadwayBaby.com).www.dianavarco.comwww.instagram.com/dianavarco Watch Trailer

Still Life

A site-specific theatrical performance combining movement and text, featuring two women and two couches in two different cities. One in Berlin, the other in Montréal: two performers united through the magic of video to create clumsy and crazy choreography.

Together, they explore how the simple and the mundane can turn into joy and transcendence.

Tania Lacy: Catch a Falling Star

In the early 90s, Australian comedian Tania Lacy was so famous she couldn't walk down the street without being mobbed. Dubbed the 'enfant terrible' of Aussie TV, she soon became 'enfant unemployable' for being too mouthy. Fortunately for Tania, women are quite 'in' right now, so there's a good chance she'll get away with it this time. She might have been too naughty for the nineties but that was then, this is now and she's decided she can be 'enfant' anything she wants!tanialacy.comwww.facebook.com/tania.lacywww.instagram.com/tanialacy/ Watch Trailer

The Onion

What do you see? What do you want to see? Is it real? Is it complete? Dive into the decaying layers of oneself, and keep peeling the onion.

How will language change as we confront each other as anonymous bodies with no physical connection?

Topography of Breath 2.0

A direct encounter with skin, flesh and breath. In current neo-liberal work conditions, where economic performance drives national identity, the body becomes a form of human capital to be disciplined for constant growth. By working with the raw processes of breath, its muscularity and affects, Pat Toh considers how a body struggles to endure a pandemic, as she examines the lived experience of being productive at such a time. In response to restrictions on in-person gatherings, this innovative digital work is a reflection on present times, and our relationship to breath and breathlessness.www.pattoh.comwww.instagram.com/pattohling Watch Trailer #1Watch Trailer #2

‘When I was a boy we used to have an ‘ala’ (niche) in our old house, where we will always put something, a picture of God, or a candle, or an oil lamp. Those spaces created bigger resonance in my consciousness, to a bigger universe than my small little world.’ How does one project emotion through the physicality of the limbs and torso?

Hexe

Not a confession, but a way to let our entrails speak… Punk, heavy metal, movement, poetry and video art create an environment that stimulates the senses. Three women struggling to raise their voices against contemporary repression discover the suffering of their forbears. Exposes taboos and shines a light on the treatment of those dubbed 'witches'. Hexe reclaims the pain of countless scorned and scorched female voices. It breathes life into tortured bodies consumed by fire centuries ago, returning colour to long-dead ashen cheeks… It gives voice to their truths, long ago ignored and demolished by a rigid, patriarchal society.

NOunderstanding

Performance is a metaphor and allegory of the world we live in, of interconnections, of incommunicability. We live in the era of global communication, but it has never been so difficult to be understood. We do not listen with the intention of understanding, but with the intention of answering. In empathic listening, the situation is reversed: ears are used, but also eyes and heart. What if we look for the silence within us: silence that allows us to perceive without distortions, and to truly understand the heart with our ears and eyes?www.saramarinelli.comwww.facebook.com/compagnia.freefallwww.instagram.com/freefall_dance_company Watch Trailer #1Watch Trailer #2

Topography of Breath 2.0

A direct encounter with skin, flesh and breath. In current neo-liberal work conditions, where economic performance drives national identity, the body becomes a form of human capital to be disciplined for constant growth. By working with the raw processes of breath, its muscularity and affects, Pat Toh considers how a body struggles to endure a pandemic, as she examines the lived experience of being productive at such a time. In response to restrictions on in-person gatherings, this innovative digital work is a reflection on present times, and our relationship to breath and breathlessness.www.pattoh.comwww.instagram.com/pattohling Watch Trailer #1Watch Trailer #2

Tradere

mesmerising new dance piece, recorded with live electronic music, from award-winning Barcelona-based choreographer Laia Santanach. This piece of contemporary dance is a reflection on the word 'tradition': the set of knowledge, customs and beliefs that get handed down from generation to generation. The piece highlights how some western traditions sacrifice the body for belief, custom and esteem, endangering it, in the name of popular belief, love and a sense of community. Created from intensive research, Tradere was made for three formats: indoor and outdoor live performance, and video. www.laiasantanach.comwww.facebook.com/laia.santanachwww.instagram.com/laia_santanach Watch Trailer

Why, Gahd, WHY?!

As the world falls into chaos, humanity is looking for its path. How will humanity navigate this treacherous terrain of uncertainty? Drag, of course! How better to understand the absurdity of it all? Why, Gahd? WHY?! is a journey into the chaos and a guiding light. Two living Gahds have blessed the mortals with their presence and will share their knowledge of the universe through the ancient arts of divination and drag… which might just be tainted with pop culture references, witty banter, and a flair for the dramatic. Fresh from the 2021 OFFTA festival in Montréal.www.houseofgahd.comwww.facebook.com/HouseOfGahdwww.instagram.com/houseofgahdwww.youtube.com/channel/UCVmWjc_GWSXicSrtlJSv-9A Watch Preview – Flat EarthWatch Preview – Rosemary’s Baby

With-in

‘When I was a boy we used to have an ‘ala’ (niche) in our old house, where we will always put something, a picture of God, or a candle, or an oil lamp. Those spaces created bigger resonance in my consciousness, to a bigger universe than my small little world.’ How does one project emotion through the physicality of the limbs and torso? This new site-specific physical piece from Oslo-based duo Nora Svenning and Sudesh Adhana, with video art from Antero Hein and music from Adun Kleive, explores the expression of almost being a sculpture.www.xproarts.comwww.instagram.com/sudeshadhanavimeo.com/user23043259 Watch Trailer

Zoon to be Other

Created during lockdown 2020 in Mexico City, this short piece reveals an oneiric transformation through desire and loneliness. A woman shares some of the emotions of a prolonged isolation period, letting the audience travel between a sexual edge and the ironic borderline of human imagination. With the collaboration of MOC Collective, Zoon to be Other is an original video directed by Patrick Trigoso and Catalina Navarrete, filmed and edited by Sebastián Foss, with music from Héctor Guerrero.www.hekatombe.orgwww.facebook.com/hekatombe.produccionwww.instagram.com/catalinanhmx Watch Trailer
