“L” by Chloe Aliyanni 

After God created Adam, who was alone, He said, ‘It is not good for man to be alone.’ He then created a woman from the earth, as He had created Adam himself, and called her Lilith. Adam and Lilith immediately began to fight. She said, ‘I will not lie below,’ and he said, ‘I will not lie beneath you, but only on top. For you are fit only to be in the bottom position, while I am to be the superior one.’ Lilith responded, ‘We are equal to each other inasmuch as we were both created from the earth.’ But they would not listen to one another. When Lilith saw this, she pronounced the Ineffable Name and flew away into the air. – Alphabet of Ben Sira.


“Shared Memory ” by Shakti Orion

“TAG” by Ania Straczynska


See the world of the child play out and evolve through the eyes of adults. ‘Tag’ allows the dancers to channel the sometimes creative, often competitive and always challenging adult world into the playful and emotive games of children. Drawing parallels between how we once acted and how we act now, ‘Tag’ questions our own perceptions of fun and play versus the modern rat race. Ask yourself, are you actually making sense and being grown up?
