Practice gives a platform for testing new and innovative contemporary performance and dance.
The evening will consist of three selected extracts of work-in-progress by solo performers and companies, some of whom will go on to produce full-length pieces that will be further developed and performed at ICIA.
Practice creates a safe environment for an engaging exchange of views between artists and audiences. After the performances, there will be an informal discussion enabling you to give feedback to the performers, opening up a genuine dialogue that will help develop the work further. This two-way communication is an integral part of the evening.
Tickets £7, £5 Concs/University staff, £5 BUSU
Includes a free drink
ShadyJane are thrilled to assist Annie Mitford (often referred to as 'The Other Mitford'), on her mission to get back in touch with her famous sisters. Although she has little claim to the spotlight in comparison to her controversial siblings, family is family and she feels it's time to let bygones be bygones. Join Annie for a good old catch up over a cuppa, in the hope that seven sisters can patch things up.
A Few Minutes with a Mitford is an attempt to get to the bottom of their own, and the nation's, fascination with the Mitford sisters.

Award-winning choreographer and performer Karla Shacklock allows them to fall, seep and explode into an ever-changing landscape in this emotionally charged, painfully honest, dance theatre solo.
As Karla physically and mentally ricochets through the years in a highly visual mesh of experiences, we can all take time to ponder our own journey and join with her in the catharsis.
