"...as a study in human physicality it’s extremely impressive" Wes Babcock, New Ottawa Critics
You’ve heard the story of Atlas - condemned to hold up the sky for eternity? Metaphors sometimes ring true. Undeterred: I crave relief and find it only in Time+Light.
Jocelyn Todd has been choreographing and presenting her work in Canada and the UK since 2013. In 2014, she was chosen to be one of three choreographers to be mentored by renowned Canadian dance artist Peter Boneham throughout a 40-hour creative process. In 2015, Jocelyn co-created a new performance platform in Ottawa, Canada called Dark Horse Dance Projects and showcased one of her own pieces in its inaugural season.
Presented by Breakin' Convention
Simple Cypher’s first creation combines disciplines from two different artforms: hip-hop and circus. Cyr wheel and juggling meets musicality, originality and play.
Kieran Warner and Christopher Thomas recently graduated the BA Honors Degree programme at the National Centre for Circus Arts. Both specialising in Cyr Wheel, the two also share a passion for Hip Hop. Style, originality and unity are key fundamentals of Hip Hop culture and have had a profound influence on their development as circus performers.
Having trained, created and performed together in both dance and circus it has been a natural development to begin to combine and evolve their love for the two together and create work. A show that connects art forms focusing on innovation through play.
We would like to say a huge thank you to The National Centre for Circus Arts, Swindon Dance, Breakin’ Convention, The Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise, Robert Hylton & Mark Glover.

‘My name is Roni. Don’t ask me to pronounce it again. Stupid name.’ Roni struggles with her in-between years; an uncontrollable body, a ridiculous family. Identity, birthday cakes, and first adventures in sex are examined through bboyin, spoken word and a bag of flour.
A contemporary hip-hop dance theatre performance about many kinds of love.
14-year-old Roni has a variety of ways to communicate with her parents, ranging from selective mutism to screaming and door slamming. These days everything seems to be wrong for Roni, from her stupid name that nobody can pronounce to a body that no longer works the way she wants and that somebody else must have the instructions for. Portrayed in turn by a cast of six male and female company members, Roni examines family, personal identity, birthday cakes, flavoured condoms and first adventures in sex, love and death through dance and spoken word.
