Return Flights will showcase some of the most innovative and interesting work from our 'Us & Them' series. We're excited to be able to invite artists back to share new developments of their work in partnership with In Good Company.
Kirsty Mealing - 'Cat Got My Tongue (I Hope It Comes Back)'
A semi-autobiographical love story between a body and her elusive voice separated by Social Anxiety. Finding herself lost for words in a busy bar, a woman steps into very large shoes to get them back.
Maud Lannen and Julie Moorsburg - ‘Psychotic Ballet’
Psychotic Ballet is a performance piece that is both humourous and endearing. Lannen draws on an ‘anti-balletic’ series of movements and architecture to expose her subjects’ awkwardness and vulnerability. Suitable for all.
James Hissett - ‘DIARY’
I’m standing at the bar, trying to decide between a range of Continental Lagers when I see a girl standing at the other end of the bar. We maintain eye contact for maybe 3 seconds before she turns away. I think about walking over to introduce myself, maybe offer to buy her a drink. But I dismiss it, she’s probably just waiting for her Rugby Playing, Car Driving, Bartender boyfriend to finish work. I order a bottle of something I can’t quite pronounce and head back to my table.
Fern Chubb and Lily Thomas present: Who are we
We invite you to watch us as people not so much dancers. On stage we want to provoke identity. In Who We Are we explore how (re)embodiment and (re)enactment can make our performance believable. We are interested in the personality of the dancer performativley. The work is semi-improvised, with a set structure and material that we 'rif' off in performance.
Lindsey Warnes Carroll's - '40-odd Tales'
Visiting a bar and office space, a woman old enough to know better considers creative rejection, achievements, failures, triumphs and f**k-ups achieved so far in her life by using a combination of costumes, words, a washing line and music from the Pink Panther soundtrack.
