homing / navigation absense
May 2 – 3

The latest production by Choreographer Yolande Snaith and her company IMAGOmoves. This new work seeks to explore the merge between embodied maps of personal territories, presense and absense of others in our living spaces and the open fields of shared, impersonal areas.



katie duck and guests:
traces of casualty / IF
May 10 – 11

Katie’s solo work embodies isolation, distress and disorientation in the figure of being homeless with an aim to reflect how our brains have been criminally rewired by media, politicians and the pursuit of opulence, so that we feel less in the face of casualty. Katie will be joined by Liam Clancy, Alicia Peterson Baskel, and Yolande Snaith for IF, a spontaneous group composition with potential objects.
