Blue Elephant Theatre
by Chris Polites

Tickets: £4.00 - £5.00 - £5.00 (£4.00 Concession and Southwark Residents)

There’s a special kind of comfort in thinking it could all end in silence."

You are now twenty nine. A few weeks ago, you attempted to stay twenty nine forever. You failed. Now words fail you.

But you have to attempt to explain anyway.

Catharsis in association with Underfoot present a heady, physical account of euphoria, redemption, and extremity.

This is a story about the fragments of time that hide between words. The things on the fringes of your consciousness. The scenes that happen out of the corner of your eye.

An compelling tale without an ending told to whoever’s around to hear it.

SIGNS
On from 13 Oct 2016 to 13 Oct 2016
Blue Elephant Theatre
by MonixArts

Tickets: £5.00 - £7.00 / (£6.00 concessions) - £7.00 (£6.00 Concessions, £5 Southwark Residents)

SIGNS is a 30-minute dance piece, fusing contemporary dance with British Sign Language. Performed by two female dancers, this exciting and intricate duet takes inspiration from Colin Thompson's poem If I told you I was deaf would you turn away.

Accompanied by an originally composed music score, it is a highly physical performance that explores the importance of body language in British Sign Language, and the barriers of a deaf person trying to communicate in a hearing world.

SIGNS is presented as a work-in-progress performance and will be followed by a post-show discussion where we welcome the audience’s feedback.

Inter Pares Project

This piece forms part of an ongoing choreographic research project, which was launched in 2013 as part of a residency at S P A C E @ Clarence Mews. The research is embedded in the performances, and the performances feed directly back into the research, focusing on presence and the act of attending to detail. This performance weaves in and out of set and spontaneous movement, drawing direct inspiration from the architecture and audience of Blue Elephant Theatre.

Morir Soñando
On from 07 Nov 2016 to 08 Nov 2016
Blue Elephant Theatre
by Stephanie Peña

Tickets: £7.00 - £9.00 / (£8.00 concessions) - £9.00 (£8.00 Concessions, £7.00 Southwark Residents)

Morir Soñando is an exploration of Dominican identity, which deconstructs the national dance Merengue and experiments with how this form of dance translates to the bodies of non-Caribbean dancers.

The work navigates the performers’ understanding of the culture through the use of Merengue music, language and hip movements. Through this exploration, a story starts to unravel revealing betrayal, agony, and power.

Morir Soñando is a roller coaster that will pull the audience along, even those not ready for the ride…

(we)SINK & Fish Tank: Double Bill
On from 10 Nov 2016 to 10 Nov 2016
Blue Elephant Theatre
by Hawk Dance Theatre

Tickets: £7.00 - £9.00 / (£8.00 concessions) - £9.00 (£8.00 Concessions, £7.00 Southwark Residents)

Hawk Dance Theatre is an exciting, emerging company based in the North West and presenting their first double-bill of new work.

(we)SINK (mentored by Gary Clarke)
(we)SINK is a dance performance exploring climate change and human psychology. Inspired by psychological mechanisms that make humans disengage from climate change challenges, this new work, choreographed by Josh Hawkins, explores feelings of distance, doom, dissonance, denial and identity in response to our changing climate. Performed by Emmie Coxey and Freya Thomas, this captivating duet questions whether these defence barriers can be broken and if we will ever truly connect to this topical issue.

Fish Tank
Fish Tank draws similarities and compares the life of a goldfish in its tank to the denials we face when dealing with change. Fish Tank explores different feelings linked to change, and imagines every human has their own ‘fish tank’ full of questions, responsibilities and problems. Fish Tank is a conversation between live spoken word, text, music and dance.

This Really Is Too Much
On from 11 Nov 2016 to 12 Nov 2016
Blue Elephant Theatre
by Gracefool Collective

Tickets: £7.50 - £10.00 / (£9.00 concessions) - £10.00 (£9.00 Concessions, £7.50 Southwark Residents)

Look. (point) You’ve never had it so good. We. Are moving. Forward.

Outlandish, bold and highly entertaining, This Really Is Too Much delves into a world of farcical stereotypes and preposterous power struggles. With irreverent physicality, four characters wrestle with restriction, gender and performance of identity, trying desperately to work out which box they fit into.

Raucous and thought provoking in equal measure, Gracefool's genre-busting performance reveals the downright absurd realities of what it means to be a 3-dimensional, high definition, water-drinking, salad-eating, moisturizing WO-man in modern society. Dripping with virtuosic charm and anarchic wit, this is feminist comedy dance at its very best.

The Very Important Chlid
On from 16 Nov 2016 to 16 Nov 2016
Blue Elephant Theatre
by The Mostly Everything People

Tickets: £7.00 - £10.00 / (£8.50 concessions) - £10.00 (£8.50 Concessions, £7.00 Southwark Residents)

This is about grown up infants.

The Very Important Child is a piece of physical theatre about the development of the ego, psychological warfare, throwing one’s toys out of the pram. Bold and comic, it blends movement, text and music.

The audience sees the complicated politics of two adult egos, two grown-ups who are convinced it is the other person’s fault. The show takes you into the developing mind of a human – the fragile baby living from minute to minute, the god-like toddler, the adult who believes herself ‘fully grown’.

The Very Important Child is a series of connected dances, it is also just a story about people. There are frenzied folk dances, wordless lyrical duets, comic observations of adult conversation and uplifting music.

CANDID
On from 14 Dec 2016 to 14 Dec 2016
Blue Elephant Theatre
by Project Candid

Tickets: £7.00 - £9.00 / (£8.00 concessions) - £9.00 (£8.00 Concessions, £7.00 Southwark Residents)

CANDID is an enigmatic ‘performance-ritual’ about the complexities of female friendships. Two women play a raw and dangerous game of Truth or Dare, setting each other a series of provocative tasks using words, intense physicality and video. Fragmented, episodic, highly sensory and symbolic moments weave a powerful and absurd ‘web’ made of shared intimacy. In this world anything can be revealed from innocent teasing, to vulnerable confessions, to deeply hurtful insults.

CANDID opens the space for the audience to experience, contemplate and celebrate long-lasting bonds, as a radical alternative to a modern day culture of ‘Temp’, ‘Insta-friends’ and ‘frenemies’ and tendencies of bullying and isolation. It exposes but also tries to subvert the stereotypical female competitiveness. Asking the questions; what does friendship look like in the 21st century? In the current climate of overwhelming online connection, how can true bonds be sustained? And to what extent can mutual candour create connection?
