Performances

Thu 22 Feb

Stasis / Christina Dionysopoulou / EDIFICE Dance Theatre

Resolution 2018

£16 (£12 concessions)

Stasis
The Sedate

Witness the hypnotic distortions of female quartet Stasis featuring electronic mix by artist Ailie Ormston. Blownout basslines, pure expression, messing with the status quo; we’ll laugh as you cry.

Stasis is Aniela Piasecka, Isabel Palmstierna, Olivia Norris and Paloma Proudfoot. They make dance work for galleries, clubs, theatres, film and outdoor spaces. Stasis’ work has led to collaborations outside of our Scottish base, alongside Pester & Rossi at contemporary art gallery BALTIC39 in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd at the cult London concert venue Koko as part of DRAF’s 10th Anniversary Party during Frieze London, and further afield in an abandoned club with artist collective ‘No Hay Asasino’ in Madrid and fashion boutique Marselleria in Milan with visual artist Dafne Boggeri.

'A trio of swimsuit-clad women sang about “fucking their way to the top” and did alarming things with party supplies. One could not wish for more.'

– Adrian Searle on previous work Eros, The Guardian, 2016

Christina Dionysopoulou
Stigma

She's beautiful and ugly at times. 
You are not her. 
She's blaming me and I blame them. 
This is where I fight back. 
 
Christina Dionysopoulou presents Stigma, her first choreographic piece. Working with dramaturg Paul Sadot and mentor Rachel Kay, she explores her autobiographical experiences of female discrimination in the dance sector on krump artist Jonadette Carpio.

EDIFICE Dance Theatre
Tenome 手の目 - eyes on hand

Tenome is a blind, humanoid creature who sees through eyes embedded into the palms of its hands.

EDIFICE Dance Theatre are a UK based dance theatre company that explore a hybrid approach to partner work using contact improvisation and ballroom. EDIFICE is co-directed by choreographer-dancer duo Carmine De Amicis and Harriet Waghorn, who both specialise in Latin, Ballroom and Contemporary dance. Together they have developed a hybrid language for choreography that combines the speed, passion and connection of ballroom, with the fluidity, freedom and connection of contemporary dance.

'Pulses are racing and bodies heaving in organic, earthy waves– it's an interesting amalgam of styles, from some excellent dancers.'
