DANCING, TALKING, TABOO

Pascal Theatre Company is collaborating with The Place Dance Theatre to create experimental dance theatre pieces for the Bloomsbury Festival.

‘Dancing, Talking, Taboo’ will be performed on Saturday October 16 from 3pm-5pm at St Pancras Church, Euston Road, NW1 2BA.  The event is free and you are welcome to drop by during the afternoon.  Alternatively, tickets can be booked at: https://bloomsburyfestival.org.uk/events/dancing-talking-taboo/

This site-specific performance is our first since lockdown and we celebrate this return to creative projects by honouring the lives of the women we have recorded in our Giving Voice Project.  https://www.pascal-theatre.com/project/giving-voice/

Rehearsals have begun and the imaginative connections between dance, speech and memory are being explored by The Place’s international dance students, young performers who will be the trailblazing artists of the future.

This exciting collaboration brings the influences of 20th century cabaret, Mary Wigman, Valeska Gert, Hilde Holger, Bertolt Brecht, Rudolf Laban, to the expression of previously unheard voices through voice and body. The dancers are supported by performer Amanda Maud a musician, actor and dancer in her own right.
