Hwangju Do

Where did this body rhythm come from?

Mickael 'Marso' Riviere
Phantom Limbs (working title)

Phantom Limbs is a new collaborative project with disabled and non-disabled artists exploring the condition of Phantom Limbs and therapies associated with it. 

Rooted in hip-hop and contemporary dance movement, the piece will explore and challenge the limits of physicality, the use of set/props and visuals. Stimuli drawn from mirror therapy and a collection of real life stories from the artists have been collected to shape a narrative for the work.

Choreographer Mickael ‘Marso’ Riviére
Dancers Kathleen Hawkins, Becky Namgauds, Marso Riviere
Composer Domenico Angarano
Mentor Louise Wildish
Producer Vasanthi Argouin

Phantom Limbs is supported by The Place (Choreodrome 2019), Wellcome Collection, DanceXchange, Birmingham Hippodrome and Théâtre National de Chaillot.

Elinor Lewis / Contributor Hannah Parsons

TIMBER seeks to expose the space between human and object as a charged area of conflict. Two women inhabit six precarious wooden frames, the choreography causing ripples of disturbance revealing the delicate ecology of their environment. The risk that the frames will fall seeks to cause tension in the audience and reflects how society today is crossing many divisive thresholds, some of which promise to lead to almost inevitable disaster.

Age Recommendation: All ages welcome but please be aware that there is a possibility of sudden loud noises.

Supported by Goldsmiths, The Place & Wellcome Collection

Times: 7pm
Venue: at The Place
