Nicola Conibere

  • Date:
    Saturday 8 August 2015


11am–12pm, Market Square, Northampton NN1 2QL
3–4pm, Becket’s Park, Northampton NN1 1HH

In Do-Re-Me two figures negotiate a path around the spaces of Northampton, whilst wrapped around each other and within swathes of tarpaulin.

Creating a mass both intensely familiar and strange, its fragmented limbs flail and reach for movement, continually destabilising and transforming the integrity of the body’s form. The performers’ physically enmeshed actions playfully provoke shifts in relation between people, material and place without resolution.

This event is FREE and you do not need to book, simply turn up on the day.

In partnership with Dance 4. Part of NN’s Filaments from the Dandelion Clock season.

About the artist:
Nicola Conibere is a London-based choreographer making work for theatres and art galleries. Her work engages choreographic processes to explore the potentials of how bodies relate, investigating states of exchange between people, duration, place and other materials. She is particularly interested in the nature and potentials of spectatorial exchange, and often investigates notions of theatricality, public appearing and social choreography in her work.
