Page-turning contemporary dance triptych
Maps, diaries, napkins, passports, receipts, parking fines, movie tickets… where does your paper trail lead? Toyi-Toyi Theatre, in collaboration with Unkempt Dance and Emma Fishwick, presents three short dance works that consider our relationship with paper.
Unkempt Dance – Creature of Habit
We record the big events in our lives, but what about the everyday? By counting coffees consumed, hours of trashy TV watched, loyalty cards stamped and various other daily rituals, see how the reality of everyday life differs from our perception of it.
Emma Fishwick – A Dance With No Home
A new solo dance work exploring displacement and connectedness, choreographed to play with ideas of space, time and meaning. Get lost in a limbo of deeply layered imagery and beautiful movement.
Toyi-Toyi Theatre – the space between
Every year more people traverse the same patterns on the earth, leaving their homelands to find a new temporary place of safety. Inspired by travellers’ maps, media coverage of migration and their own personal stories, the space between explores the history of people crossing borders and our endless search for home.
