Simple Cypher at Resolution 2017 (Triple Bill)

Date: 8pm, Thursday 16 February
Venue: The Place

Acts: Jocelyn Todd/ Simple Cypher/ Fly No Filter

Simple Cypher - Roll up, roll up

Presented by Breakin' Convention

Simple Cypher’s first creation combines disciplines from two different artforms: hip-hop and circus. Cyr wheel and juggling meets musicality, originality and play.

Kieran Warner and Christopher Thomas recently graduated the BA Honors Degree programme at the National Centre for Circus Arts. Both specialising in Cyr Wheel, the two also share a passion for Hip Hop. Style, originality and unity are key fundamentals of Hip Hop culture and have had a profound influence on their development as circus performers.

Having trained, created and performed together in both dance and circus it has been a natural development to begin to combine and evolve their love for the two together and create work. A show that connects art forms focusing on innovation through play.

We would like to say a huge thank you to The National Centre for Circus Arts, Swindon Dance, Breakin’ Convention, The Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise, Robert Hylton & Mark Glover.

Price: £15 (£11 concessions)

Two Destination Language - Declining Solo

Date: 6 — 7 June
Venue: Jacksons Lane

A woman visits her family home and misses the one thing she values most: the father she remembers.

It’s in a place where there’s singing and dancing and eating and drinking and being merry, and of friendships and familial links, as the total core of communities.
It’s in a place where we still have mountains unadorned.
And where the summer smells of sun, and the winter smells of burning coal.

It is about a heyday, the heyday of a man.
It is also about ageing, it is also about fading.

I think if I piece it back together somehow
If the vase has been broken and I put back the pieces, it can get better.

Combining text with choreography, video and specially commissioned music, Declining Solo is the sequel to Two Destination Language’s award-winning Near Gone.

Produced in association with Salisbury Arts Centre, ARC Stockton, The Point Eastleigh and Dance4.
