The Conway Collective presents:
Dotdotdot Dance Company in No Frills
Three dancers, one voice, one guitar and one percussion box.
No Frills is flamenco stripped down to its bare essence.
Through an exploration of a number of its traditional styles in their most evocative form, this show is a celebration of the raw and nuanced energy that flamenco awakens, not only in the dancer but in the spectator too.
Dancers Noemi Luz, Magdalena Mannion and Yinka Esi Graves, seamlessly interweave their individual styles creating a shared flamenco language which is accompanied by Ana Colom's evocative singing.
No Frills asks the spectator to put aside pre-conceptions of what flamenco is, instead giving a unique insight into its rhythms, melodies, energy and power.
Tickets £10, £8

The Conway Collective presents:
Writer and performer Richard Waring teams up with director Luke Dixon in the creation of a new solo show.
Times are dangerous for the Jews. Their windows are being smashed, their graveyards overturned, and some are being murdered.
They are even being accused of using the blood of Christian babies in their Passover bread.
The threat of violence is ever present.
One dark night a Rabbi creates a creature from the mud of the river bank.
It is a being of enormous strength, with power to defend the Jews from those who would destroy them.
But can the old rabbi control his own creation?
An old tale retold.
Never has the story been more pertinent.
Only London performance prior to New York.
Tickets: £10, £5
