WELCOME

We’ve had a fantastic start to 2019, celebrating our tenth anniversary of the Jerwood DanceHouse with inspiring premieres, events that allow us to indulge in dance and events that will make a difference to the dance sector. We are continuing on a high with our Summer Season and I’m particularly looking forward to our Double Bills – having followed the same formula for a while, we’re looking forward to trying something a little different and would love to know what you think. We have two evenings of Double Bills (see pages 3 and 7), both promise to be of high quality, presenting new work and work from international artists – these are nights you’ll want to bring your friends along to.

Brendan Keaney Artistic Director and Chief Executive

Throughout 2019, we are highlighting 10 events that represent the spectrum of our work, one of these is House to Home. We are incredibly proud of the work we do within our community and the positive impact we have on those around us. This performance will include over 100 community dancers, inspired by how the Jerwood DanceHouse has and will be a home to so many. I hope you’re able to join us in celebrating such an important part of who we are. It might be the anniversary of our purpose-built home, but DanceEast has existed for more than 35 years to bring great dance to the East of England and working across the region remains a priority for us. This summer you’ll find us in Lowestoft on more than one occasion! From local community members dancing in the park, to First Light Festival where there’ll be dancing on the beach for 24-hours, we are determined to introduce dance to as many people as possible.

E M A G S ’ T H G I N A THE HICCUP PROJECT

ALLEYNE DANCE

Comedic dance-theatre company duo The Hiccup Project, are often introduced as ‘The Lovely Hiccup Girls’. This got them thinking.

A Night’s Game reflects the turmoil and strife of human emotion when faced with the prospect of incarceration. Explore the mind's journey as the loss of freedom engulfs every waking moment.

At first, they weren’t too bothered by it. Lovely? That means they’re friendly. Girl? That’s a ‘normal' word for a female, right? Being lovely is important as a woman. It’s expected. But, what if they want to be more than that?

Inspired by true life events, Alleyne Dance create a dark, atmospheric and abstract work that is as thrilling as it is powerful. See workshop information on page 19.

Lovely Girls follows Cristina and Chess’ poignant, hilarious and truthful journey as they explore what it is to be young women today, challenging the confusing, and often ridiculous, contradictions, clichés and expectations. Using their powerful blend of comedy, energetic dance and theatre, they imagine a world where women can be and do whatever they want.

DOUBLE BILL

£10 per ticket, £7 concessions or £15 for both, £12 concessions DANCE THEATRE HIP HOP

This is the second Double Bill of the season, our first can be found on pages 3 & 4. This evening consists of male solos - both new to DanceEast. Lanre Malaolu first came onto our radar last year and we were blown away by the quality of his work, his brilliance and his energy. Mohamed Toukabri is a Brussels based artist. We first saw The Upside Down Man (The Son of the Road) at a festival in Dusseldorf. We were desperate to bring Mohamed to the UK, so joined forces with Shubbak Festival to secure a small UK tour. After DanceEast the work will be travelling to Pavillion Dance in Bournemouth, The Lowry in Manchester and London’s Southbank Centre. We hope you’ll be as excited as we are about these brilliant new artists and would love to hear your thoughts about our new Double Bill format.

“Dancing gives me the freedom to just be! It touches my heart and my soul and I feel a total release emotionally.”

“I find dancing extremely enjoyable. I find it challenging and stimulating both physically and intellectually. I love the process of creating pieces as part of a team, the exploration and communication of thoughts and emotions in an abstract form. Then there is continuing to learn and move forward, laughter, sharing, self-expression, freedom and probably many other things that will come to mind later.” - Time to Dance class participant DANCEEAST.CO.UK 01473 295230
