This season we have two Double Bills – a new format for DanceEast that we’re looking forward to sharing with you. The evenings will present new work from a total of four different artists, two on each night. These very different artists are all at the start of their careers and we want you to experience them at this exciting early stage.
The first of these Double Bills is from The Hiccup Project and Alleyne Dance. The Hiccup Project duo are often found in the studios at DanceEast – rehearsing, leading workshops and amusing the DanceEast staff. They’ll be presenting their new work, Lovely Girls and we promise you’ll be in for an evening of thought-provoking laughter. We also welcome Alleyne Dance to DanceEast for the first time and what better way than as part of this powerful Double Bill? We hope you can join us for this celebration of female choreographers and performers.
Come along to just one show of the Double Bill for £10 per ticket or, come along to the whole evening for £15! (Both performances must be added to your basket to receive the £15 ticket offer – any queries please call our box office on 01473 295230)
Comedic dance-theatre company duo The Hiccup Project, are often introduced as ‘The Lovely Hiccup Girls’. This got them thinking. At first, they weren’t too bothered by it. Lovely? That means they’re friendly. Girl? That’s a ‘normal’ word for a female, right? Being lovely is important as a woman. It’s expected. But, what if they want to be more than that? Lovely Girls follows Cristina and Chess’ poignant, hilarious and truthful journey as they explore what it is to be young women today, challenging the confusing, and often ridiculous, contradictions, clichés and expectations. Using their powerful blend of comedy, energetic dance and theatre, they imagine a world where women can be and do whatever they want.
The Hiccup Project is supported by Arts Council England, South East Dance, DanceEast and The Place. A Night’s Game is supported by Arts Council England, Arts & Movements Ltd., Desti Masti Studios, Akram Khan, The Brit School of Performing Arts andl Ultima Vez Company.
