Lola Maury

Two to Tune

Two to Tune is a homage to the synchronicity we sometimes experience with another person. Animals anticipating the attack, pogo dancers sharing a groove, daring sports contestants, lovers breathing, magnets attracting and repulsing, planets orbiting.

Two dancers share a moment of absolute concentration, connecting and harmonising with one another’s bodies, synchronising rhythms and impulses. Alert, apprehending and responding. They are playfully locked together.

Lola Maury is an artist working within two discrete forms: dance choreography and participatory game creation. Running through all her artistic work is a desire to create intimate, sensory and intense experiences for her audiences and participants.

Dense in form, visceral in flow and evocative through use of movement, her choreographic work explores possibilities to somatically impact an audience, keeping the spectator alert and with enhanced focus on themselves, as much as the performer.

10 Tracks for the End of the World

In 2012 I celebrated my first ten years in dance, right when everyone was saying that the world was about to end. I decided to create a long solo consisting of ten chapters put together in a playlist prepared with the advice of ten friends. Framed by a fragmented serial structure that leans towards cancellation, 10 Tracks for the End of the World is the collection of those moments in which I felt the need to escape and at the same time the desire for the end of the world to swipe everything away.

Riccardo Buscarini Riccardo Buscarini is an award-winning Italian choreographer and dancer based in London. After training at Accademia Domenichino da Piacenza in Italy, and London Contemporary Dance School, he received a danceWEB scholarship to join Impulstanz, Vienna in 2010. In 2011 he was one of the finalists of The Place Prize, he won the Creatives in Residence award at The Hospital Club in London, and Premio Prospettiva Danza in Padua/Italy. In 2012, he won Fondo Fare Anticorpi in Emilia Romagna, Italy for the creation of 10 tracks for the end of the world. He was chosen to join the international research project ArtsCross London 2013, and is one of the artists involved in the European research project Performing Gender. In 2013 he also founded the project The Plusies with Runa Kaiser premiering Friends, an event mixing the forms of a rock concert and a contemporary dance performance. From December 2011, Riccardo has been teaching Choreography and Performance at Birkbeck University.
