Kris Canavan ¦ The Leveller
As a political movement, the term “Leveller” first referred to a faction of New Model Army Agitators and their London supporters in 1649 who were allegedly plotting to assassinate the king; it had been used in 17th-century England as a term of abuse for rural rebels and in the Midland Revolt of 1607 to refer to those who “levelled” hedges in enclosure riots. Organised at a national level, with offices in a number of London inns and taverns such as The Rosemary Branch in Islington, “Levellers” would identify one another by sprigs of rosemary that they would wear in their hats…

Using his body as a framework for iconoclasm and getting under his own skin, Kris Canavan makes the symbologies of fractured society a deeply personal affair.

Antje Hildebrandt ¦ You Make Me Want To Lose You
An experimental investigation into the human relationship between body and its surroundings. The performance plays in the here and now, with moments of stillness and movement, intimacy and publicity. The dancers cannot see but must negotiate themselves together and alone in a strange environment. In this playful and risky act of exploration the performers subtly interact with their surroundings — evoking moments of surprise, empathy and wonder.

Performers: Martha Passakopoulou + Rosalie Wahlfrid.

Antje Hildebrandt is a London-based choreographer and performer who creates site-specific performances, installations, one-to-one encounters, video and theatrical works. Her first choreography Hybrid was chosen to represent England in Bari, Italy at the 2008 Biennale for Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean. Antje has worked with Serbian Artistic Collective Doplgenger, Lea Anderson, Willi Dorner, Franko B, Ivana Müller and Tino Sehgal, and is a member of Trio, a collective of four artists interested in collaborative performance practice.
