Azara Meghie: Just Another Day and Night
This event is Pay What You Decide!
Featuring a short solo from Namiuki Dance Theatre- Reformation
Every day we enter spaces that provide us with comfort. Sometimes we enter communities where we are less at ease. But we cross these boundaries with confidence and humility; embracing our identity, not trying to please.
Exploring the events in a day, and over the course of one night at a house party, Azara struggles to shrug off questions about race, gender and sexuality…to just dance!
Using a canvas of sound which incorporates live drums, we journey in and out of a rhythmical dialogue between poetry, breakdance and theatrical movement. The riveting, bespoke and humorously infectious language Azara creates, allows her to tackle themes of isolation, ostracism, homophobia, racism and classism. Through experiencing these personal, climatic scenarios, Azara illuminates her discrimination. For Azara this ‘Just Another Day and Night’. But for you this is a real story and one to be heard.
Namiuki Dance Theatre: Reformation
Reformation sits as a thinking space to explore lived experiences and current thinking through live experimentation with an audience. It also provides a tool to educate hip-hop dancers who wish to explore theatre making in the basic fundamentals of applying their unique movement vocabularies in a theatrical context. The production has been performed at The Civic Theatre in Dublin, Leeds Beckett University and Sadler’s well in London.
