Justyna Sochaj


"There was a lovely physical/ performative differentiation between sections that were the life of the subconscious mind, and sections that seemed more bound to the moving, sleeping body. (...) The piece had a Mitteleuropa/ fairytale/ early psychoanalytic quality; and something robust and straightforward, in its engagement with its subject matter, that was really disarming."
Isabel Carr, for Agony Art Platform at Chisenhale Dance Space, June 2014

An exploration of the world of dreams. Three characters delve into the subconscious through dynamic, frenzied movement sequences. Their stories and emotions are intertwined with the sound of the life accordion.

Justyna Sochaj received a Postgraduate Diploma in Community Dance from Trinity Laban. She combines her work in community dance with professional dance activities in other contexts such as performing.

Nashia Santanatalia Gómez started dancing in Spain at a young age. She moved to UK and completed a BA (Hons) at London Contemporary Dance School. She is a confident performer, also strong in drama and improvisation.

Martina Schwarz was born in Cologne. She has lived and worked in Germany, France and Great Britain as a musician, composer-songwriter, performer and teacher. Martina Schwarz enjoys a constant and varied stream of engagements as an accordionist, singer/ songwriter and performer, as well as a composer for theatre, film and dance. She has collaborated with numerous dance and theatre companies in the UK and abroad. 

Dorota Popinska started her dance journey in preschool. She moved to London in 2010 to continue her dance education at Trinity Laban and received a Diploma in Dance Studies. She has performed at international dance festivals and numerous dance competitions (Poland, Germany, Japan and UK).

"It is a rare pleasure in the performing arts to find a work that engages you in such a multi-sensory way." Caitlin McDonald, Everything Theatre

Tapping into imaginative spaces within material realities, the work follows one person’s quest for disentanglement. But often, the more you untangle something, the more tangled it becomes. It’s a ropey business.

Elise Nuding is a dance artist, a mover and a thinker whose creative practice includes performance, choreography and writing. She holds a MA from London Contemporary Dance School and a BA from Brown University. Her research explores relationships between place, memory and people, with a current focus on the embodied knowledge of labour practices.

Politicians do a lot of talking, but they don’t do much moving. Colin and Sheila, your local MPs, dance their way to election night. Who gets your vote?
