The Storeroom - T1935819502

The Storeroom, a dark, comic physical tale played to a mesmerising soundtrack. It is a moving jigsaw and a stylish thriller. From child to cabaret to convict; this sinister montage of contemporary theatrical styles it bewitches from start to finish. It’s a one woman show that tells a tragic story of lust, violence and flawed dreams, all from a dark, deserted storeroom. The sound design and set add another layer to this mysterious piece as old boxes become cells, become doorways. Become a playground full of passionate adventures and eerie confessions. Live and recorded voices muddle to enhance the melodramatic account of this disturbed woman’s life. Suspended from a ladder she hypnotises with control and prowess. Revenge is a cold dance. She’s dressed to kill and ready to sing. The answer is in The Storeroom, if only she can make the pieces fit. Seen through the eyes of a dazzling dancer, reality and fantasy collide as she tries to unlock the secret of her mysterious past.

A Square of Sky - T1922157482

A Square of Sky is a promenade performance which combines dance, theatre and live music with film and sculpture. Set in a pit of red sand and bricks, it evokes the cruelties and consolations of life as seen through the eyes of a child. Inspired by Janina David’s book about life in the Warsaw Ghetto during the Second World War, the production examines the survival of the human spirit and relates her story to events of today. A Square of Sky is a moving and poetic account of experiences shared by all those who have endured oppression because of their race, religion or colour. The production brings together international artists, dancers, actors, musicians, refugees and survivors of political upheaval. It will be performed at the magnificent Round Chapel in Hackney.Design Juginder Lamba. Performer Sian Williams. Performer Ryan McCluskey. Performer Svetalana Malinina. Performer Roisin Rae.
