As we look back at the first half-year of NIGHTS, we present works which use text, movement, improvisation and gameplay to explore longing, belonging, loss, and love.
Luisa Amorim & Graça Amorim – (just)happening
After appearing in NIGHTS #1, we welcome back Luisa Amorim. For (just)happening, she will be joined by her daughter, Graça. They will invite the audience to participate in a correspondence with London, reflecting on time, love and death.
Elisabeth Flett – ROOTS
Born and raised in a sleepy village in Fife, Elisabeth Flett moved to London aged seventeen and has been struggling with the concept of belonging ever since. ROOTS is an exploration of what it feels like to lose home, and a questioning of whether it’s possible to re-find what is lost.
Short Sides – The Duet It Should Have Been
Through movement and text, The Duet it Should Have Been questions whether we always mean what we say when communicating with each other. Subtle improvisations capture moments of an unrestricted stream of consciousness, opening up the channels of genuine self-expression.
Przymierska Morgan – Parallel Lines
Przymierska Morgan is a London-based performance duo. Margot Przymierska and Nicholas Morgan make their work on the fault line between performance & live art, where they explore the complex relationship between the stories told by mass popular culture and what feels like our own immediate subjective experience. Their practice aims to uncover and playfully critique the interweaving of these two threads in the fabric of our reality.
They have performed at The Cockpit, Battersea Arts Centre, Fairfield Halls Croydon, Cardiff MADE and New Art Projects London. Their practice formed part of a 2014-15 research project on translingualism at Birkbeck University of London.
