Walls Between Us - Eriketi Andreadaki

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall. That wants it down.
So why do we continue to build them?

Walls Between Us explores the contradiction of creating and breaking boundaries and barriers. It dwells on the human need for fellowship and meaningful connection as well as the distance and barriers between us.

Drawing inspiration from Robert Frost’s Mending Wall, we investigate the concepts of limitation, personal space, touch and communication in an attempt to discover whether indeed “good fences make good neighbours.”

Eriketi Andreadaki is a London-based dance artist, originally from Athens, Greece. She graduated with a MA in Contemporary Dance from London Contemporary Dance School, where she toured nationally and internationally with postgraduate company EDge. She also holds a BA (Hons) in Media Studies and Communication. Since graduating she has worked with a number of independent artists, such as Joanna Kalm and A(r)ct. Her most recent choreographic work Walls Between Us was presented in October 2017 in Greece, in collaboration with Emi Amerikanou.

Performers: Sophia Sednova and Eriketi Andreadaki
Originally performed by: Emi Amerikanou and Eriketi Andreadaki

Baby Plus Two (Excerpts) - Bricolage Dance UK/Lise Smith.

“There is no more sombre enemy of good art than the pram in the hall,” said some bloke who
was clearly no good at multitasking. This solo is our rebuttal.

Pram firmly in the hallway, Baby Plus Two brings to life the physical and psychological experiences of early parenthood - from breast engorgement to mastery of nappy-sniffing via a constant low-level angst; filled, like motherhood itself, with angst, humour and love.

Lise Smith trained at Trinity Laban, graduating in 2006. She has produced companies including Kate Flatt, Scarabeus Aerial Theatre and Kamala Devam, and made work for companies including Cambridge Contemporary Dance as well as performing and rehearsal directing. She has worked with Bricolage Dance since 2012, becoming a co-director in 2017.

Quebranto - Lucía Piquero

This work in progress is a personal collaboration based on ideas surrounding freedom of expression and the loss of it either by external means or personal impositions. It explores feelings of inadequacy, lack of words in the face of current political and social situations, and how, although it is not possible to express certain horrors, silence is even worse a response.

Choreographer Lucía Piquero and sound artist Renzo Spiteri come together once again to explore the possibilities of performance to incite discussion and present different view on current social issues

Performer: Lucía Piquero
Sound Artist: Renzo Spiteri
