“Modern dance goddess” Antonia Grove embodies real life American B-movie actresses, whose interviews are fed to her through earphones. Antonia undertakes a series of edgy, sexy and unpredictable transformations which border on disguise and derangement. Small Talk is a brave and compelling solo made in collaboration with Wendy Houstoun. It’s both funny and darkly disturbing.

The Selfish Giant

by Colette Sadler

Friday 23 November 10.30Am Suitable for ages 4-7 £5 per person, babes in arms free Duration 30 minutes

This big-hearted production, combining storytelling, puppetry and dance, will charm audiences from 4 to 104. It’s based on the much-loved tale by Oscar Wilde. One day, a Giant returns home to find children playing in his beautiful garden. He puts up a high wall and a notice saying “TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED”. His garden remains locked in a wintery chill. But one morning the Giant finds something is different… Watch the trailer on our website.

“The story of the transforming nature of love was beautifully brought to life” Exeter Express and Echo


Did you’s OK to be different? No two people (or monsters) are the exactly the same. A playful, humorous and inventive response to the idea of things and people being different.

“It grasped the children’s attention straight away. It opened their minds and really allowed creativity” Karen Ross Teacher

There are scratchy creatures and mini monsters playing and interacting with one another with their arms and legs moving in strange and impossible ways.

Natasha Z Player is our African and Mini African Dance teacher and was the first person to perform on our terraces for our launch event back in September 2010. She’s since taught hundreds of people young and old, and our customers always tell us how much they love her warm personality and uplifting classes (see page 32). We had a quick chat to get to know her better. “I discovered African Dance when I was visiting family in Tanzania. I had previously studied ballet, but I found African Dance fitted my movement and rhythm perfectly. I started training regularly in London and Bristol, before studying intensively in Canada and taking study trips to Ivory Coast, Senegal and Gambia. From initiation, coming of age and warrior dances, African Dance doesn’t stand still, it’s evolving all the time. I love teaching at Pavilion Dance South West as there’s a real mixture of people. One day I’m helping young children create new movement and the next, meeting language students from a completely different culture. I’m lucky to have the opportunity to perform, most recently in Obey The Wind at Bristol’s Circomedia and multi-cultural festivals.”

Supporting ARTISTs

Pavilion Dance South West strives to create a structure to support dance through new approaches to producing, presenting and educating. We’re interested in physical adventures and new movement and are committed to developing dialogue and understanding between artists and audiences. We endeavour to create fertile and significant experiences for our audiences by engaging them in ways that can sometimes be intimate and thoughtprovoking and sometimes expansive and exhilarating. Our engagement with artists’ development embraces three stages and we view our engagement with them as a generous and collaborative relationship.

T: 01202 203630

1. FIRST DATE is an opportunity for us to get to know artists better. We’ll provide up to five days’ studio space, accommodation and travel expenses. The company will commit to two informal chats with us during the week where we learn about each other, understand the aspirations for the work and offer ideas for the future. The company will also get to test their ideas in front of an audience at our regular Hatch & Scratch nights. See page 16.

2. COURTING begins to refine our relationship as we bring creative influences in to help feed the work and let it grow. We’ll provide up to five days of studio space, access to our theatre and a technician for one day, accommodation and travel, as well as a small bursary to support the making process.

demonstrates our belief in the artists as we become advocates of the work. We’ll provide a cash investment to help enable the work to be made and tour. We’ll be credited as co-commissioners and receive a performance of the new work. We will provide technical production space and time and may support with dramaturgy, marketing or other significant inputs.

“Pavilion Dance South West has been instrumental in supporting me...and this means a great deal in terms of encouragement and the feeling that my work was valued and esteemed” Jane Mason, South West Regional Dance Artist

These steps could act as a ladder but the right artist can also begin a relationship with us at any point depending on their experience and needs and our priorities.
