Signatures and Black British Dance Platform

About

Signatures and Black British Dance Platform

Led by Serendipity, Signatures is a platform that provides opportunities to nurture and support undiscovered talent. Working with emerging dancers and choreographers based locally, nationally and internationally, Signatures will showcase excerpts of work in development; thought-provoking, explorative and always innovative, this is a unique opportunity to see rising stars of dance.

The Black British Dance Platform is a collaboration between Serendipity and Dance4, with the ambition to support and nurture dance artists from the African and African Caribbean Diaspora, who are based in England, with a desire to present work internationally and supports the aims of cultivating a sector that is representative of contemporary Britain.

Further artists to be announced.

A Moment – Wakati
Nantea Dance Company

A duet layering dance and projected film, this work explores the moments in life that change us. Considering our attitudes, thoughts, experiences from childhood to adulthood and examining how we can find comfort, support and care in our shared experience.

High Science
Jamie Philbert

High Science arrives across the borders of the 'interiority of sound' (Ong) which allows the practitioners of Kalinda accessing of their monster (the ability to reveal), the demon (a guardian angel of refuge), the jumbie (shadow as a higher self). The piece highlights the ever present matricentrality of the sacred grounds of Kalinda as martial tradition or way of life throughout the Black Atlantic.

Breakin' Boundaries
Shreya Vadnerkar

Through Bharatanatyam and breakdance, Breakin' Boundaries is a showcase of British Indian experience. The feeling of belonging to many and to none, fitting stereotypes and trying to find
one's self.
