Choreography by Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wellelsey Wesley.
Concept and direction by Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion.
“…they are intellectually curious, funny and rude, possessed of chameleon stage talents and a taste for risk.” The Guardian
Outspoken dancers Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wellesley Wesley, AKA Nora, bring to the stage a bold, new translation of Morton’s Feldman’s For John Cage, source of Burrows and Fargion’s iconic Both Sitting Duet (2002, performed at LLAWN03). They reimagine the earlier work as a standing performance that builds silent music from a gestural landscape of intimate touch. Eleanor And Flora Music is about the rediscovery and revelation inherent in acts of translation, and the emergence of new choreographies from situations of collective practice.
“It’s a complex physical and mental journey which could become tedious to watch if it wasn’t for their quirkiness and humour. They frequently glance at the audience, show signs of fatigue and exchange wry smiles – incidental gestures which bring colour to their many, interrogative activities.” London Dance
Performance at 2.00pm on both Sat 24th and Sun 25th Sep in the Embassy Ballroom in the Queens Hotel.
