"Polar and Sextant"
Performance of dance, voice and text.
In the world of change some changes are overt, some covert.
This performance provides both evidence and sub-text
to the worlds of the body, head and heart in their orbits.
Our tools are the body dancing, the head thinking and the heart in motion.
We speak simply - you watch and listen with all your complexity.
Concept, performance: Vera Lapitskaya, Julyen Hamilton

Length: 50 min
A duet piece which explores an interaction of verbal and non-verbal, of words and movements. The artists tend to their inner poetry and choreograph what emerges into instant dances. The piece curiously approaches verbal material through the physical experience. The artists use movement and text as two languages, they explore the mixture of these as an artistic practice.
