Nora invites Burrows, Fargion and Tanguy - Nora

1hr. 35min.


Nora is the coming together of dancers Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wellesley Wesley. Their desire to dance together, their love of choreographic structures and their critical eye has given them the impetus to invite several distinguished dance makers to create work especially for them. In their first collaborative endeavour they perform an evening of new works by acclaimed duo Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion, and French choreographer Simon Tanguy. With Burrows and Fargion they have created a brand new translation of composer Morton Feldman's For John Cage, the source of their iconic Both Sitting Duet (2002). This new piece, entitled Eleanor and Flora Music, reimagines the earlier work as a standing performance, building silent music from a gestural landscape of touch. Up and coming choreographer Simon Tanguy has worked with Nora to develop a complex score of momement and text, creating a unique and intricate portrait of the two women and the political world they live in. The evening will also include a third element, to be revealed closer to the date. World Premiere.
