Exposing process, body politics and representation (in many forms), choreographers Grace Nicol, Fallon Mayanja and Erena Reilent present an evening of noise and movement for Resolution 2019.

Grace Nicol - I Only Laugh to Keep From Weeping

I Only Laugh to Keep From Weeping draws reference from the Vanitas movement, dealing with concepts of beauty, excess, loss, ecstasy and camp.

Grace Nicol is a choreographer, producer and academic. She has recently been interviewed for i-D Magazine, It’s Nice That and Ladybeard Magazine discussing the dance-gender debate. Grace is the founder and director of the performance platform, Woman SRSLY. Her work has been shown at The Place, CentrE17, The Yard, Guest Projects, Hackney Showroom, the V & A Museum and has toured nationally and internationally, winning a Stockholm Fringe Award in 2015.

Fallon Mayanja - Pearl as epidermis

Pearl as epidermis starts with a declared text laying the frame for this piece. In the second part the body unfolds to show pearls as epidermis

"My artistic production takes me to explore bodies and identities. Often others. Defending the idea of plurality and multiplicity of identities, I strive to shift the vision of the real and the conceivable of bodies."

In Pearl as an epidermis, first the voice with spoken words is the body and the sound questions the border between viewer or listener. S.he has the opportunity to discover an unexpected sound cosmos. Then movements become the space of existence of this body with its pearls skin. This body seeks its materiality, through the gaze, so it unfolds following the flow of his liquids.

Erena Reilent - Being-O-Matic

It’s about particular way of thinking - systems thinking. To initiate it, to follow it, to enjoy it.

Systems thinking is a particular way of thinking about the world.

The essence of systems thinking relies in a shift of mind:

- seeing interrelationships rather than linear cause-effect chains
- seeing processes rather than snapshots.

In general, people don’t see the world as a group of unrelated things hovering around. To some extent, we all seem to think systematically, intuitively. However, it’s more in our subconscious rather than conscious mind.

The piece Being-O-Matic initiates to use systems thinking, to follow it, to enjoy it.

Performers: Flavien Cornilleau, Mihkel Ernits, Frankie Hickman, Ryan Jones
