Die elektroschuhe and new member of the collective Lysandre Coutu-Sauvé invites you to share an evening of dance with performance extracts of two duets.  

In collaboration with Joanne Willmott and Nicola Penfold die elektroschuhe presents this expose, an opportunity to gain insight into the creative process for two contrasting dance pieces. Selected extracts illustrating the works in progress will be presented in their current form and discussed in the context of the vision for development for the wider piece. 

Canadian choreographer Lysandre Coutu-Sauvé (die elektroschuhe) and NewYork based choreographer Maya Orchin present a duet exploring the meeting point between the magical world and and our present society. Playing with the idea of magical realism, the two delve into the question of what happens when the two worlds collide?

Joanne Willmott and Nicola Penfold, two British choreographers will present their study based on ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, exploring isolation, solitude and the failing view of reality of the main character in the short story. The choreographers will discuss how task based improvisation based on the text has brought the imaginary into the physical space and explore the synergy between emergent themes from the text and from the movement material.

After the performance showcase the choreographers welcome any feedback in an informal Q&A session over drinks. 

By and with Maya Orchin and Lysandre Coutu-Sauvé
