Nora Invites brings to the stage a bold, hysterical and sublime programme of duets by renowned choreographers Liz Aggiss (UK), Simon Tanguy (FR), and Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion (UK).
Dancers Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wellesley Wesley, AKA Nora, offer up an evening of energy and wit as they shift between the contrasting characters and worlds of the three pieces.
Burrows’ and Fargion’s piece, Eleanor And Flora Music, overflows with free-ranging, rhythmical dancing, their musical score translated into a playful landscape of touch and synchronicity.
Tanguy’s choreography, Digging, slips between subjects - road trips, plant biology and sexual desire - as dialogue and motion twist the stage into all corners of the imagination.
Aggiss’ finale, BLOODY NORA!, is fiery send up of all who dare patronise the menstruating woman. It is a riot of hormones, competitiveness and female solidarity.
Commissioned by Sadler’s Wells and DanceEast. Co-commissioned by South East Dance.
