I Am Not In Love

Performed at The Place, London, February 2016 as part of Resolution!

  Happening

Artist:

Jodie Cole

 

A piece about love, finding love, finding lasting love. Through text, movement and a journey on her bike, Jodie tells a story of unforeseen love.

What makes the work surprisingly effective is her appealing personality and the way she finds simple movements that precisely evoke complicated emotion... the upside down cycling of her legs conjures sadness as well as escape. It made me want to see more. - Sarah Crompton

Holi Woman

Performed at The Place, London, January 2015 as part of Resolution! 2015

 
 

Artist: Jodie Cole (Jyoti Dance)

 

The Holi Woman dwells between Eastern and Western notions of ritual and beauty. Choreographer Jodie Cole explores the ethereal thread that links the two. India, a country of ritual, colour, chaos and contradictions.

...an honest tale of one woman’s experience, subtle enough to challenge without condemnation. - Francesca Mcloughlin

Happening

Performed at The Place, London, January 2015 as part of Resolution!, and Rich Mix, London, April 2015

  Happening

Artist:

Rachel Burn

 

Life can sometimes seem to have a life of its own. Witness worlds shifting direction, falling apart and thriving with four dancers, twenty real people’s stories - and dozens of balloons. Happening celebrates the quiet yet significant moments of self-reflection that affect each of our lives, and keep us growing, changing and individual.

Migrations

Performed at East London Dance Dance + Circus, May 2011

Migration (m-grshn): a movement from one position to another. What causes us to move from one place in life to another? Inspired by Hugh Hughes' dark-humoured nostalgia, Migrations follows its performers on a journey through careers, love and the impending future, examining the pathways they have taken so far and where the journey may lead next.

Nocturne

Performed at The Place Robin Howard Theatre, London, as part of Resolution! 2011 and touring

 
 

Artist:

Sooraj Subramaniam

nocturne
 

"Nocturne is a skit on the netherworld of sleep, through insomnia, dramatic dreams and ‘falling’ awake (you know that feeling?). He flips easily between comic and dramatic modes, whether thudding feet to the floor as if stamping out demons or scratching his bum in his sleep. Special mention for possibly the most beautifully mimed hand-washing ever seen on stage. A promising start for Subramaniam, another voice to add to the interesting evolution of South Asian dance in contemporary Britain." - Lyndsey Winship

"The company explode the stage with flashes of bold energy as they continuously shift and pursue each other in the space." - Michelle Harris

Butterfly Stitch

Performed at The Place Robin Howard Theatre, London, as part of Resolution! 2010 and touring

 
 

Artist:

SIN Cru Theatre

 


"Pow! Bang! Wallop! SIN Cru (with woolly hats that say so) blast their way through the beauty debate in their high-octane Butterfly Stitch. I would certainly have a stitch if I attempted to do what these four talented dancers get up to. A school-uniformed duo shoves and grabs at each other like children, the boy brutally forcing the girl to look at him. An identical couple appear and join in the pounding. Their unique fusion of break-dance with Wim Vandekeybus-style attacks on the body is exhilarating." - Terry O'Donovan
