Count down begins for our next performance next week! We are so excited to announce that ‘Signs’ is back on stage at The Blue Elephant Theatre on 13th October 2016, 8:00pm.
If you haven’t been able to watch our previous show at the Young Actors Theatre, this is your chance. ‘Signs’ is an exciting dance duet, fusing contemporary dance with British Sign Language. The performance will be followed by a Q&A section where you get the chance to ask the choreographer and the dancers anything you want about the work.
‘Signs’ is supported by Arts Council England, Hiive, Candoco Dance, bbodance and IdeasTap.
Join MonixArts at a sharing of their latest creation ‘SIGNS’ at the Young Actors Theatre in Islington. Building on Monica Nicolaides’ successes at Resolution!, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, The Blue Elephant Theatre and The Riley Theatre this “assured and talented choreographer” (Cloud Dance Festival, 2013) has thrown herself into a project centering around the movement of British Sign Language.
‘SIGNS’ has been in creation since last year having an intense development period this summer including sessions with Candoco BSL specialists and a dance workshop at Oak Lodge School Wandsworth for young people with additional support and communication needs.
‘SIGNS’ will be performed on Saturday 3rd September at 7.30pm at Young Actors Theatre, Islington. The Natashas Project will be performing NATASHAS, as part of this exciting evening.
This performance marks the end of this research and development period for Monica and the dancers and the start of the piece’s life outside of the studio.
We are so happy to announce that after many months of extremely hard work in the back office we have secured ACE Grants for the Arts funding! This is an exciting time as we will be developing our latest work, ‘Signs’, over the next few months.
In a couple of weeks we will be getting back in the studio to extend ‘Signs’ and prepare for a show. Alongside, we have been developing our workshops to promote British Sign Language and engage with the deaf community. If you would like more information about our workshops, or are interested in booking one please contact us on: email@example.com
