A double bill: NOWhere & Be fruitful and multiply
Time & Location
About the Event
From environmental crisis to social harassment, emerging choreographers Alka Nauman and Greta Gauhe present a though-provoking double bill of exciting dance works at Chisenhale Dance Space. In the first half of the evening “Be fruitful and multiply” by Alka Nauman takes us onto a journey about the ambiguous nature of plastic bags; on their elegance and ugliness, as well as their daunting ability to adopt different forms.
The second work “NOWhere” by Greta Gauhe, examines issues of racial and sexual discrimination and harassment. 6 dancers from 4 different countries and 2 different continents deal with autobiographical experiences in a gripping interplay of performance, spoken word and dance.
Both Greta Gauhe and Alka Nauman trained at the London Contemporary Dance School and graduated with a MA in Performance & Choreography. Their works have been presented as part of the postgraduate Showcase at The Place in London.
“In Nauman's work the viewers are confronted with riveting questions regarding what do humans value and what will future generations consider the greatest achievements of this epoch.” Stella Rousham “Gauhe makes unobvious, strangely-affecting choreographic choices to present the most cohesive group work I have seen in a while.” Izzy Rogers, Dance Art Journal
