Nora is the coming together of dancers Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wellesley Wesley.
Aggiss has conceived BLOODY NORA!, a story of competitiveness and hormonal imbalance in which shit tricks become cheap laughs, and a Bach is worse than its bite. Affectionately known as ‘the grand dame of anarchic dance’, Aggiss is a Brighton-based performer, choreographer and dance filmmaker, who has been presenting her work nationally and internationally since 1980.
Burrows and Fargion’s piece, entitled Eleanor And Flora Music, is a brand new translation of composer Morton Feldman’s For John Cage, the source of their iconic Both Sitting Duet (2002). This new piece reimagines the earlier work as a standing performance, building silent music from a gestural landscape of touch. “What [Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion] are brilliant at is turning the eccentricities of their shared creative world into irresistible theatre… It’s all wildly, unclassifiably bonkers” (The Guardian).
Tanguy has worked with Nora to develop Digging, a complex score of movement and text, creating a unique and intricate portrait of the two women and the political world they live in. Trained in clowning, burlesque, buffoonery and grotesque at the Samovar School in Paris, alongside choreography at the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam, Tanguy’s eclectic background also extends to street circus, judo and philosophy.
