‘Speaking Dance’ and ‘Counting To One Hundred’

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion

Choreographer Jonathan Burrows and composer Matteo Fargion have toured the world for the past ten years with a series of duets, acclaimed for their musical invention, insight and humour. The first in the series, Both Sitting Duet, won a 2004 New York ‘Bessie’ Award, and Cheap Lecture was given a Belgian Het Theaterfestival award in 2009. During the Brighton Festival this year they presented Cheap Lecture and The Cow Piece at The Basement. They return to Brighton now to share two more of their performances at The Nightingale, Speaking Dance (2006) and their most recent duet Counting To One Hundred (2011).

Burrows and Fargion describe what they do as 'handmade and human-scale'. It is built from simple, non-spectacular elements, but arrives often at a deceptive scale and virtuosity which radiates delight even as it makes the audience think.

Speaking Dance was co-produced by Dance Umbrella London and supported by Arts Council England and the Jonathan Burrows Group. With thanks also to Dance 4 Nottingham.

Counting To One Hundred is supported by Arts Council England, Kaaitheater Brussels and Sadler’s Wells Theatre London.

A Choreographer's Handbook by Jonathan Burrows is published by Routledge and available from Amazon.com.

Absurdist self-indulgence you'll be thinking, but what you see is revelation and joy.

The Evening Standard

There are few performers who can hold an audience captive like this double act… the timing of every note, shrug, laugh and gesture is awesome. Five stars.

DANCE DANCE: A double bill

Dan Canham & Augusto Corrieri

The first in a series of inimitable double bills authoring the future of dance, as written by some of the country's boldest and most boundary-pushing artists.

Augusto Correiri's Musical Pieces revolves around the theatre's mechanism of concealment and revelation, the on and the off, the visible and the invisible. At the Nightingale, Augusto will present two short performances accompanied by a commentary on their making. The result is a slowly unfolding performance that invites spectators to unlink what they see from what they hear, in a gentle activity of intense looking and listening.

Dan Canham's 30 Cecil Street is a dance theatre work that is an eloquent and heartbreaking elegy for a lost theatre. A performance of fragments and memories of wild nights and long-disappeared communities. It evokes the life of a once mighty building and asks what is left when a theatre closes its doors to the public.

Dan Canham raises ghosts in spine tingling dance-theatre piece, 30 Cecil Street… exquisitely crafted, thoughtful theatre.

The Guardian

(30 Cecil Street) Heartbreaking quiet and delicate. A beautiful little show.

Simon Ellis, Antonia Grove, Charlie Morrissey and Lauren Potter

Improvisational performance and discussion.

From a series of components; four players; a set of instructions and a time limit; we set ourselves the task of making something. All we know is when it starts, and when it ends. This is an informal performance in which the process is made visible to both audience and performer. Come and see these four consummate performers compose a performance in real time.

Simon Ellis is a New Zealand born performance maker and dancer with a broad practice founded on choreographic traditions. He has a practice-led PhD (investigating improvisation, remembering, documentation and liveness) and develops both academic and professional work. This has included choreographies for various contexts: site-focused, screendance, installation, webart, and black box. In 2008, his solo performance Gertrud was a finalist in the Place Prize, and in 2009 the film Anamnesis (developed with David Corbet, Cormac Lally and Bagryana Popov) was awarded School Jury Prize for Best Film at the InShadow Festival in Lisbon. Most recently, his performance project Desire Lines was presented as part of Place Prize 2010. www.skellis.net @simonkellis on Twitter

Antonia Grove trained at Rambert School and went straight on to join Rambert Dance Company. She has also danced for Walker Dance/Park Music, The National Theatre, Random Dance, Bonachela Dance Company, The Cholmondeleys, Charles Linehan Company, New Art Club and Fabulous Beast. As a dancer Antonia has twice been nominated for the Critics Circle National Dance Awards, was nominated for the 2005 Time Out Live Award and in 2004 performed The Place Prize winning piece E2 7SD by Rafael Bonachela. In 2006 her performance in Probe’s Soledad won the Guglielmo Ebreo Award and Critics Choice Award.
As a choreographer Antonia has made works for Resolution!, Rambert choreographic platforms, INTOTO Dance Company, Bifem a Russian play, Yorkshire Youth Dancers, Gloucester Youth Dance (with PROBE), Hampshire Youth Dance Company, Central School of Ballet, Northern School of Contemporary Dance and The Frome Festival. www.probeproject.com

Three’s company, two is a party

A show by Sarah Alexander, Helen Duncan & Quindell Orton

Dance theatre with a sprinkle of trash and a dash of comedy

Didn't get the chance to see us at 2011 Edinburgh Fringe? Feel utterly disappointed? DONT WORRY! We are performing right here in Brighton - Just for you!

Helen and Sarah mix up a cocktail of theatre, dance and comedy to bring you this light-hearted, witty show. Set to classic hits from the sixties to the noughties these classy Brighton girls will showcase their slick moves while attempting to tolerate one another long enough to share the stage and the spot light. The show also welcomes a cameo appearance by female funny girl and former Bristolian disco dancer, Jayde Adams. 'Adams will woo the crowd with her vivacious and hilarious one woman variety comedy show' - 'Jayde Adams - Master of None'.

One night only. One comedian trying to dance, two dancers trying to do comedy. Just back from great success at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Forget seeing all the big and well known names! Go see these newcomers. Very droll humour, multi talented and moments of unexpected sheer joy and deep pathos. A real find of a show. They deserve you to turn up in droves. So go!

LoveFringe.com (Edinburgh Fringe Festival)

This very impressive combination of talents provides a great show, blending dance, comedy and more than a 'touch of drama' to create a great entertainment. A 'must see'!

Whitebox Collective - Us Puppeteers (work in progress)

The murder of Alec Birch is being investigated in a not entirely orthodox fashion; William interviews those involved alone in his office with the aid of flirtation, manipulation, alcohol and fancy dress. The line up consists of Alec’s teetering but immaculate widow, his painfully closeted speech therapist, a young woman who is unable to speak, and her professional carer with whom she has such a deep understanding that it may be the only route to obtaining the truth. That is until the dead Alec Birch arrives to give his testimony and throws William into a whirl of events much darker and closer to home than he is ready for…'

Welcome to this jumble of extracts from Us Puppeteers, a Whitebox Collective Production. The extracts you will see form part of a work in progress. They are taken from different points in the play and do not appear in chronological order. We hope you will stay afterwards and talk to us about what you think, whatever you think, of our piece.
