Practice – Nicola Conibere
(70mins stage version / 3 hours installation version)
Performers: Helka Kaski and Neil Callaghan
Practice is an intimate exploration into what makes bodies look familiar or strange. Through elaborate costume, peculiar interactions and useless dance two performers create states spanning the quiet, curious and carefree. As they perform, the fabric that dresses them is reconstructed into a set that surrounds them in a striking transformation of theatrical frame. Practice playfully confuses the forms of display that tell us who a body is.
Practice was presented at Laban Theatre, London on Thursday 26 April 2012, 7.30pm
Practice is co-produced by Jardin d’Europe in partnership with Southbank Centre, with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union. It is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
It has previously been shown at Nottingham Contemporary in association with Dance4.
