1. JeonEUN Park (KOR - UK)

title : I am standing

duration : approx. 10 minutes

Statement of intention of work

I am exploring relations between language and performed bodily movement.
I am exploring what is performing and performance.

As an improvisation, I will talk about my experience of being on stage performing, while I am performing on stage.
Using language to describe, suggest, predict, anticipate, negate the bodily movements, I will explore the mercurial relationship between body and thought.

statement: Two separate beings. 
                  Blurring Distance.


3. Grant Bingham and Liz Ord (UK)

title: Dependency 

duration: 15-20 minutes

A study of body based research on the dependency we form between people as well as objects and substance, the desire to go back to nature, strip away and understand things in a primal sense of there physicality not there stigma or the option of escapism that lives with them.

I depend on you, your stare, your grazing grating stare, stare at me, pay me attention. If you stop looking at me I might stop existing. If I stop existing I cant exceed, indulge, consume until I’m sick (repeat)

Here is the strategy: Forget everything, lay down, shut your eyes and take things at they come.

4. Anniken Weber (NOR-UK)

title: unknown

duration: 30 minutes

How expansive is the symbol as an image?
Knowing that symbols are created from identification, and read differently,
I seek to stretch the two-dimensional object into three-dimensional action and translate the symbol through sound and movement.
What can a symbol be when put through selected motion?
The action is drawing, as music, as writing, while reading the writing; an inquiry for unfoldment of and relation to the object.

5. Lizzie Masterton (UK)

title: Contamination
duration: Approximately 30 minutes

               starting inside, moving outside

Statement of Intent:
My performance will focus around a few objects: a white chair, and red wool. With my body I will attempt to navigate and inhabit these objects, and the connotations of their colour, aware that they have been 'contaminated' and imbued with different meanings. As an object the chair is a loaded symbol- a tool of intended interaction and empathy- and sitting is a passive occupation linked to comfort. Bad memories become attached to certain items of furniture. I will attempt to accept and work with these existing implied meanings and memories, starting off as an 'empty' vessel myself. As my performance develops I aim to discover and establish a ritual, to cleanse the contamination and undermine previous associations.

6. Imo Jeffes (UK) 

statement – I’m exploring the theme of struggles relating to identity and femininity. By constricting my body in bandages and tights (domestic products) I experience a process of change, that affects my physicality. This tension of how I feel and being perceived and how I see my self is something I want to explore in my work.

7. Sikarnt Skoolisariyaporn (THAI-UK)

Space in Body in Space
     a session in search of deep space
duration:  30 minutes

8. Dagmar I. Glausnitzer-Smith (GER)
title: time, time like an ever rolling stream
duration: approx. 25 minutes
statement: the action is a 'transmaterial' connection between physical and abstract presence in time and space.
The body can be understood as the anatomical substance and the material object's yearning, which initiates an action. 

Hear the body and the mind will follow.

A shoe can be a chair.
Something can always also be something else.
