Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Because I Can is a delicate dance solo made by Eva Recacha in collaboration with performer Lauren Potter and sound artist Alberto Ruiz Soler, visiting notions of power, memory and growing old. 

The piece is a poetic stream of consciousness where memories flow in and out of our grasp, leaving a delicate scent of nostalgia and loss. The audience witnesses the performer revisit various memories, her presence becoming an ode to a quiet yet liberating rebelliousness that turns intimacy into a tower of power. 

Please Note: For a short period of time this performance talks about death.

Duration: 45mins

Free Post-Show Talk: Join artists involved in the show for a discussion about the work.

Commissioned by The Place and South East Dance.

Because I Can is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
