‘As You Reach...’ (Semi-finalists at MOVE IT & Capezio Championship 2017)

The choreography’s starting point was looking at people’s body language when they meet; from first encounters to reunions of long lost family or friends. This short piece is also commenting on the effects of technology on social interactions and human relations in a today's society.

''It was incredible, it was so captivating, your characters were so clear right through the beginning, I wanted to know what was happening, I was engaged, choreographically it was so visually stunning''  - Lukas Tyrell MacFarlane

"It was fabulous, it was very unique, very different to anything we have seen here today, and everyone was an actor, and everyone on that stage knew how to act to their dance. I love originality that is what we need today".
- Arlene Phillips

The piece has been performed at MOVE IT & Capezio Championship 2017 and will be featured at Art Night event on 1st July 2017

Past Productions:

This contemporary dance piece is inspired by the animal and natural world that can be found in the urban context. ‘Dwam’ will take you on a journey as you meet different characters inhabiting a quiet city park. Costumes and objects are used to create a connection between the ordinary, everyday world and the more abstract world of dance. This choreography will appeal especially to a young audience.
The piece has been performed at the Big Dance Bus , Hackney Children Theatre and Bloom festivals.

'Raining Cats and Dogs'
The Choreography is inspired by London's graffiti.
This was featured at the SPINE Festival 2016.

The Choreography is inspired by the art exhibition 'Momentum' showed at the Barbican - Curve Gallery.
The choreography devised by Ideachor's members, recreates through the body and its relationship with space some of the patterns and most importantly the mood and environment, originally created by the twelve electronic pendulums of the exhibition.”
