OF LAND AND TONGUE trailer Theo Clinkard
20 & 21 June 2014 at Circus Street Market, Brighton
Rehearsal footage from OF LAND AND TONGUE.
An evening of startling and eloquent dance that situates the audience right at the heart of the action.
For his stark and poetic duet CHALK Clinkard draws inspiration from the iconic cliffs of his hometown. He is joined on stage by composer James Keane who provides a live score.
OF LAND AND TONGUE is a dance of odd sensations and unnameable experiences performed by an exceptional cast.
An accumulation of untranslatable words from foreign cultures acts as a springboard for this compelling quintet.
Clinkard's brand new double bill delivers a truly visceral dance experience in an intimate setting, where live music and breathtaking dance rips across the floor right at the audience's feet.

Insight Trailer: Emmanuelle Vo-Dinh
Saturday 5 April 2014, South East Dance Studios
To book contact the Studios on 01322 618618
Choreographed by Emmanuelle Vo-Dinh, (Director of Le Phare, National Choreographic Center of Le Havre Upper-Normandy). Four performers create a collection of different situations with multiple narratives, all based on a simple action: kissing each other. From the repetition of this action and its apparent simplicity, the piece develops as if behind closed doors: it is absurd, cynical and a reminder of how we relate to each other as humans. Audiences will have the opportunity to meet the artists after the performance.
