Autumn 2019 Performance Programme

Join us for a jam-packed programme of performances this Autumn, with radical new work by CDS Members and international guests. We kick off in September with Encounter Bow, a free outdoor arts festival on the streets near our East London home. Then Future Fridays is back, giving a first look at seven new projects led by CDS Members.

We are thrilled to co-present the London premiere of Last Yearz Interesting Negro’s I ride in colour and soft focus, no longer anywhere, our first offsite collaboration with Stratford Circus.  In our Performance Studio we'll host acclaimed works by James Batchelor (AU) and Mariana Valencia (US), fresh from performances at Fierce Festival in Birmingham. CDS Member whatsthebigmistry brings her interactive show, Tropical Awkward Bastard, and Dinis Machado returns with his new group work, NORMCORE. Rounding off the season is the second edition of dance improvisation night, Roadhouse, hosted by Eleanor Sikorski and Lewys Holt.

Finally, Coffee Mornings return in October, with a session every month hosted by illyr, Joe Moran, and Neus Gil Cortes. Watch this space for dates and full details.
