The University of Chichester performance company mapdance, brings together 14 dancers, 3 newly commissioned dance works by Luke Brown, Kay Crook and Seeta Patel, alongside a restaging of Gary Clark’s On Your Marks from 2020. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience dynamic, theatrical and beautifully crafted work by both established and emerging choreographers.

Gary Clarke | On Your Marks

On Your Marks takes its inspiration from the Dance Marathons of the 1930's, a new type of live entertainment show that spread across America during the Great Depression. Blurring the lines between theatre and reality, couples competing in the event danced relentlessly for hours, days, weeks and sometimes months for a grand prize of fame and fortune. Bringing together Clarke's idiosyncratic theatrical movement style, wry humour and a dash of irony, On Your Marks takes a close look at one of the most bizarre and desperate acts of human endurance.

Seeta Patel | First Light

First Light creates fleeting images of the evolution of humankind and the collective. Drawing inspiration from Seeta’s dance roots in the Indian Classical dance form of Bharatanatyam, this exquisite work is detailed and intricate, emotive and layered.

Kay Crook | Winged Beast

Made by Kay Crook, Artistic Director of Chhaya Collective, the physically charged Winged Beast draws on the Greek Myth of Medea and the events that led her to seek brutal revenge on Jason. We observe a woman navigating the patriarchal structures that have cast her aside like a disposable object. An explosive power play which asks the question, who is the monster?

Luke Brown | Let Us Know You

Choreographed by Luke Brown, Artistic Director of Luke Brown Dance in collaboration with Mapdance, Let Us Know You is inspired by Mihoko Ogaki’s Milky Way Sculptures which represent Life, Death and Rebirth. This work looks at the body as a galaxy, the boundaries and borders that surround us and the infinite space we live in.
