Adventures in Black and White
A show about the aftermath of displacement, exploring migration, belonging and relation to one's heritage, devised and performed by Double Trouble. The development of this work was supported by Starting Blocks (Camden People's Theatre) and Battersea Arts Centre, funded by Arts Council England. We have premiered at Streatham Space Project in May 2018. Information about the upcoming tour coming soon!!!
A multimedia performance project in development exploring Daphne's myth, trees, transformation, inner awareness and bodily soundscapes. Devised in collaboration with Foxtale Ensemble, Stacie Lee Bennett, Eoin Furbank and Daisy Orton, lead by Prof. Rosemary Klich (East 15). Supported by Arts Council England.
Inspired by the Herring Girls - women who travelled to gut and salt herring in the UK fishing ports - the work uses simple objects (fishing nets, salt and bandages) and plays with the balance between abstract dance, functional movement and complex relationship between two women. The project is led by Vicci Riley, in collaboration with Judita Vivas, produced by One September.
A performance research project in development, in collaboration with Carolina Vasilikou (Architect and Lecturer), exploring the meeting points between contemporary performance and architecture in the form of improvisation and design-by-making. More information coming soon!
Since February 2018, together with Acting Now (social theatre company in Cambridge established and directed by Marina Pallares Elias), I've been leading weekly theatre sessions with a local group experiencing mental health challenges. We are creating a performance about life around the A14, inspired by the participants' stories, childhood memories and experiences of being on the road. The show will tour Cambridge and the surrounding area in November 2018. This project is supported by Cambridgeshire Community Foundation. More information coming very soon!
