Grains in an invitation to illuminate and reflect on shared cultural heritage. Blending elements of Eastern European folk tradition with contemporary dance language this piece plays with stories via the interactions in a strong female trio.
The performance tightens and unfurls around a live score inspired by the aural tradition of passing melodies down through generations.
Polish born London-based choreographer Ania Straczynska invited composer Nick Murray to create collaborative work. Grains was previously performed at Ignition Dance Festival as a shorter form. Ania has also presented her work as a part of Resolution 2017, Footprints Festival (Roehampton University) and at Chisenhale Dance Space, she is currently completing an MA in Choreography at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
'hugely enjoyed Ania Straczynska- inventive choreography and beautiful dancing'

With thanks to Dance West and emerging choreographers bursary.
A white wedding, performing with a feather boa at the Burlesque, and an extravagant Broadway debut, are things that we dream of doing. In reality, we are folding, rinsing, and whipping bed sheets.
Presented in rhythmic and regimented patterns, the sheets perform as a metaphor, allowing us to escape the mundane and perform our dreams. As they are in life, dreams are short lived. It’s not long before we are whipped back into the sheet reality. Unfortunately for us, the cycle continues tomorrow. More dirty sheets to clean. After all, it is just the same sheet, but a different day. - Mapped Dance Theatre
'Mapped Dance Theatre's work has it all. Rhythmic sheet folding and nostalgic tunes bring the women's reality and their dreams to life. Surreal and enticing, this work draws you in and is certainly not shy.'

Same Sheet, Different Day in is partnership with the Grad-Lab project, The Point Eastleigh, University of Chichester, University of Winchester and Arts Council England.
Immersed in darkness, a whisper calls. And to the flame they go.
Power and an internal sense of unity, the rawness and fluidity of movement transcends viewers to another world.
This trio focus' on the rooting feeling "like a moth to the flame". This desire is drawn throughout the work creating a mesmerising atmosphere that the audience can indulge in.
