The Blue Elephant Theatre, in Camberwell, London, marks Black History Month with a dance double bill. In What The Soul Can’t Hide/Harbour, choreographer Heather Cupid brings contemporary, Afro-contemporary and Caribbean styles together. The two stories create a journey of personal battle, cultural difference and finally celebration. The show runs from October 4 to 6.
Later this month, the Blue Elephant presents Signs, Games and Messages, which mixes electronics, choreography and cutting edge composers. The show is by Sounding Motion, a new company of musicians and dancers who have graduated from Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London Contemporary Dance School, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Laban and the Duncan Centre Conservatory. They aim to explore meetings of music and dance, with choreography by Imogen Bland, Anne Marie Kristensen and Dominick Mitchell-Bennett. The music is by György Kurtág, Tigran Mansurian, Javier Alvarez and Sounding Motion’s resident composer Benjamin Graves.
Signs, Games and Messages is at the Blue Elephant from October 24 to 27. Tickets for both shows are available from www.blueelephanttheatre.co.uk.
