Levantes Dance Theatre "Two Peas without a pod”

at kinitiras studio artistic residency centre with the support of British Council

The performance:
How, why, where, when and who we find ourselves synchronizing with can be a mystery; our compulsion to duet our way through life, a life-long fascination.
Fluid and vibrant, ‘Two Peas without a Pod’ explores the essence of partnership and the dynamics of co–dependency and competitiveness.
Audiences are taken on an indulgent trip to discover the make-up and contradictions of human connections, observing the draw of coupling, how society’s structures stem from this principle and how varying and fascinating these partnerships can be. The absurd and the familiar are married together with set and flamboyant costume in this fantastical cocoon of colourful activity.
Award-winning Levantes Dance Theatre consists of innovative practitioners Bethanie Harrison and Eleni Edipidi who combine contemporary dance theatre practices with visual and live art. Familiar mechanics of pedestrian routine are regularly woven into choreography to develop penetrable, peculiar and often humorous landscapes.

The workshop:
Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 June 2011
The aim for L.D.T. when working in education, is to highlight the creative tool (our body) we each possess; its individual character and ability to communicate. We work collectively with pupils either devising a piece, or simply workshopping ideas. We feel it is important their creativity is utilised and so avoid prescribing style, or teaching excessive repertoire.
The workshops are always fun, energetic and colourful. We avoid a canvas of shape and style and instead celebrate the individual and their uniqueness. We encourage mind and body to be engaged equally in the equation and welcome the inclusion of other disciplines (art, theatre, music) throughout the process.
fee 50 euros
Tickets : 15 euros , 10 euros (students)

Few words about the Company :
Levantes Dance Theatre consists of key practitioners Bethanie Harrison and Eleni Edipidi. The company works primarily with Dance Theatre, with a constant enthusiasm for fusing artistic disciplines and indulging in vibrant aesthetics.
The work is current, bold and honest. Intrigued by the draw of obscurity, the crux of work visually explores contradictions, blending and sinking into equal measures of the mundane and divine. Both the absurd and familiar are married together with set and costume, which in turn, are inhabited, developed, eaten, destroyed, worn, applicated and distributed within process.

We have a kitsch admiration for routine and value the body’s capacity to communicate in its most basic form. We wrap our audience in a cocoon of colourful activity striving to cushion their acceptance of an oddness, which in time melts into a viable element of the landscape.
‘[They] use dance as a simple yet enlightening method of communication.’
