Reel to Real: Artificial Things

July 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

As part of this month’s Behavin’ Festival, we are hosting an evening of film exploring movement and dance in usual places with a screening of short film ‘Artificial Things’ by Stopgap Dance Company, created in 2018.

“A stark, empty office space is transformed into the exciting and rather sinister setting for a surreal dance performance. The dance styles keep transforming, bringing constant surprises, and the piece exudes energy. The dancers seek each other out, help one another and reject each other. Without words, the performers create a parallel world in which there’s space for vulnerable human interaction.”

Stopgap is a UK-based ensemble, which integrates disabled and non-disabled dancers and artists, operating with a distinctive movement aesthetic, and collaboratively developing work that “seeks to open a window into a parallel world where human interdependence, strength, and vulnerability play out with poetic realism.”

Pre-film supper available in the Stove Café from 6pm for £5 per person.
After the screening we will have drinks and a discussion back in the cafe!
