Opening night on February 27th at Night Cathedral in Chichester.

Mapdance performs a diverse repertoire. This year 2018 the company has commissioned new works from Niv Sheinfeld & Oren Laor (Israel), Laila Diallo (UK), Helen Parlor (UK) and Laura Aris Alvarez (Belgium/Spain) offering a refreshing mixture of dance theatre, intricate lyrical choreography, fast-paced athleticism and wry humour.

“Any artistic encounter can become a revealing experience, an implosive or explosive experience. It can feel like a slap in the face or be as liberating as breath. I’m not only talking about the relationship between the performance and its audience, but also the dynamic created between the choreographer and the performers during a creative process.”
— Laura Aris

"One Day Three Autumns is a performance reflecting on today's societies discord with nature. This working frame allowed us to point out a current topic that, unfortunately, is reiterative in the history of human kind: Power and Conflict. If our limits can become art then we insist on attempting to do so, constructing particular poetics to explore a universal theme but commenting on a hot topic, the unsustainable use of disposable plastics and its grievous consequences.
There is nothing as boring as emotional inertia. There is nothing as fascinating as witnessing a person finding a solution to a problem."
