28th Nov to 16th Dec 2019
Open 90-min somatic class & 5-hour dance laboratory // Open to all

~ Open Somatic Class ~
10am - 11.30am

The ecology of attention
Somatic practices such as the Alexander Technique, Klein, Kung Fu, BMC and others will be applied to activate a set of awarenesses - awarenesses being the capacity to perceive and move in ones surroundings. Heightening the perceptiveness and moving beyond our daily routines, our bodies will immerse in the environment removed from externally imposed demands.

How is it that our tastes and habits so often intersect with choices that are simultaneously free (since the action is not immediately forced upon us) but nevertheless strongly conditioned (since they tend to be also modulated to the causations in our environment)?

~ The Lab ~
12pm - 5pm

This exploratory performance lab is open to all, regardless of age, shape or colour. Those who question these labels are invited especially. Experimenting with the rules of understanding and giving agency to the Dance itself, viewing Dance as an independent entity advocating for its own rights(!) enables us to work with the abstraction of Dance whilst poisoning and dissecting the highly developed and validated realm of choreography.

We will disturb the demands which are deeply embedded within the histories of gender determined dance floors - the reality; we will use strange and transient means that entangle and contaminate these histories, as a way of replacing Man - the dancer - with an assemblage of species, objects, cultural and historical trajectories, proposing a post-Man - The Dancer.

We will also explore the ethics of vulnerability focusing on the relation of unregulated encounters.

Dance, as a language, offers us hearing of the future through the dance floor: the ground which embraces the ecology of differences, the ground holding the disruption, the ground that allows for dancing beyond borders of existing understanding. What more can Dance be?

Open to all backgrounds.
Folx from across the full spectrum of identity are eagerly invited to join the lab.
All dance lovers and dancing enthusiast, dancing nerds contact improv freaks, traditional dancers, or crazy clabbers, all the other spirits, all the ghosts and creatures, musicians, philosophers, and other bodily people, you are all very welcome to come.
Age is not a limit!

We all are half done, we all are incomplete. Mohan Rakesh's Aadhe Adhure is what true theatre is. It is pure drama written with a very nuanced and methodical understandings of human psyche. It repeatedly draws often the theme of our expectations and reality. Are we happy with what we have? Can we ever be happy? What is happiness?

In Aadhe Adhure, Mohan Rakesh takes an ordinary family where the family relationships are already crumbling. The wife is the only earning member in a family of 5, the husband has lost all his self-confidence. The elder daughter eloped and married but is still struggling to find happiness, her younger brother has reached of age but yet to find a job and the youngest teenager has coming of age problems coupled with a need to get attention. The wife is tired of taking care of everyone and has her own desires and ambitions.

Rakesh wastes no time in setting up the tension, but he never lets go off it. This is a story where everyone is at fault and yet no-one is. Rakesh unfolds the story brilliantly and his command over his audience is splendid.

TOYO - Theatre on your own, uses minimal props to render the story. At some points, it feels mere a dramatic reading of the play yet the actors render their roles with a gloom that stays with you even after the play gets over. There is also a minimal use of shadow effects yet it adds exponential flavoring.

Aadhe Adhure is a must watch play. You can take your parents to this one and it will be a discussion point for the way back home.
