    The End

    Thu 14 Oct 7.30pm | Full £12 | Conc £8 | Age 16+ 

    In this new piece, Bert and Nasi dance the end of their relationship, imagining what a future without each other might look like. 

    Above the stage and projected onto a screen, two parallel narratives run alongside each other: the end of the Earth and the end of their collaboration. In the vein of their previous work, it is a poignant, sad and funny account of the ongoing ecological crisis. Their dance is a reminder and a celebration of our own mortality, and that of everything around us.

    Time unravels and stretches on into infinity, but the end has never seemed closer

    Both insistently silly and unreservedly heart-rending

    THU 13 FEB 2020 | Full £12 Conc £8 | 7.30pm | AGE 14 +

    3Fall Dance Company is proud to present four professional works celebrating contemporary female choreographers. Kay Crook’s Phoenix is an emotive and infectious work based on her company piece ‘Khaos’.  Marisa Zanotti makes reference to Roland Barthes brief visit to a Bognor Regis nightclub in the work A Lover’s Discourse in Bognor  which reconstructs a dreamy night in a fantasy ballet.

    Carrie Whitaker’s Tracker is a fast moving work where the dancers shift through a spectrum of dynamic intensities as they tune into the ever-changing energy, tension and drive of each encounter.  with momentum, energy and texture.

    Finally, we celebrate a recent 3Fall dancer who has now established her own company Morvell Dance. Her work 7 Minutes of Mind Mischief  is fast, frenetic and fun.  The show offers a variety of dance theatre works that celebrate the talent of these young dancers and includes new works from emerging choreographers from the University of Chichester third year dancers.

    Mapdance 2019/20

    THU 5 MAR 2020 | Full £12 Conc £8 | 7.30pm |AGE 16 +

    mapdance 2020 offers an enticingly varied set of exciting new works by renowned and upcoming international contemporary choreographers. The gratifying roster of new artists this year includes Gary Clarke, Ceyda Tanc and Noa Shadur plus the revival of Inside the Animal by Jose Agudo from the 2018 tour.

    mapdance, the University of Chichester’s MA touring company, is an established group of dynamic young dancers recruited and touring nationally and internationally. Their diverse repertoire offers audiences a refreshing mixture of gritty dance-theatre, wry humour, and both intricate and questioning choreography. It is a programme that will appeal to both seasoned dance viewers and audiences new to dance.

    ‘… leaping and turning in zesty spurts with an insouciance that leaves nothing to chance’

    Donald Hutera (2016)

    ‘Agudo’s Inside The Animal delved even deeper into the existential swamp with a contemplation on reflexes and instincts that truly underscored how little human nature has changed during the so-called ascent of Man.’           

    Miles Hedley (2019).
