Bridget Lappin
Who’s Afraid of a Pussy Cat?

“She’s clearly comfortable with making her audience uncomfortable…” – Sara Veale for DanceTabs

A female body morphs between the animalistic and her femininity. Distorting ideas of desirability and danger, she discovers her raw physical energy and the fear it inspires.

Who’s Afraid of a Pussy Cat? is a solo work exploring themes of beauty, power, and perception. The performer adopts the persona of a tiger, fusing it with her physical identity as a woman. Taking ownership of her body and the power within it, she threatens the patriarchy and toys with its fears of the female.

Bridget Lappin is a contemporary dance artist based in London. She has performed with Richard Alston Dance Company, Bern Ballet, Humanah Productions and has presented her own solo work internationally, including Resolution 2016.

Choreography and Performance: Bridget Lappin
Artistic support by: Chisenhale Dancespace, Jerwood Space and Brighton Dance Network

Mathieu Geffré
What Songs May Do

An insight into the power of song, reinforced by Nina Simone’s Feelings. What happens when we challenge the tradition of our seat for the freedom to respond as an audience?

A duet danced by Angela Boix Duran and Joseba Yerro Izaguirre. The two dancers considered as audience members attend Nina Simone’s performance of the song Feelings that she gave in 1976 at the Montreux Jazz Festival. The power of this song and Simone’s interferences will have an impact on the performers relationship. 

First developed by Mathieu Geffré at National Dance Company Wales as part of its annual choreographic showcase, Alternative Routes, in June 2015, in collaboration with the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
What Songs May Do received the 3rd Prize at the 9th Copenhagen International Choreography Competition.
