We are presenting our new work in progress performance at Watch This Space, National Theatre, London as a part of Gone in 20 Minutes(Gi20) festival, on the 7th & 8th of July 2012, at 5 pm.
Gi20, now in its second year, is a national showcase supporting 10 emerging artists and companies to develop and present new work at two high-profile arts festivals in the UK.
Lara Ritosa Roberts is working with a contemporary dancer Lisa Hood and circus artist / trick bike performer Alice Allart on devising a new 20 minute piece ‘ A Story Which will Never be Finished…’ combining movement theatre, performance art and sound within a minimalist setting that echoes the aesthetics of protest. The sound collage features poems by Vladimir Mayakovsky & text by Leonid Andreyev.
