Leap Dance Festival 2018


The festival begins at the Capstone Theatre on Friday 2 November with Liz Aggiss: Slap and Tickle. This award-winning show is a dark and ribald physical comedy driven by content that embodies feminist dance practices, is framed by the politics that challenge and resist the 'authority' of formal conventions, revising attitudes towards mature female visibility.

On Monday 5 November a cast of intergenerational women from Liverpool will perform Gaby Agis: Shouting Out Loud at The Great Hall with a soundtrack by seminal punk band The Raincoats. On the same afternoon Gaby Agis and Eva Maria Mutka will perform a duet entitled Close Streams.

The Warehouse Studio Theatre plays host to Jo Fong: An Invitation on Tuesday 6 November. An Invitation is an interactive and ever evolving piece of theatre that invites audiences to engage and develop the performance.
Over at the Capstone Theatre on Tuesday 6 November audiences will be treated to a double bill of dance in the form of Laila Diallo: In This Moment and Liz Roche: Wrongheaded.

On Thursday 8 November, Uchenna Dance bring The Headwrap Diaries to the Capstone Theatre. Three fierce, clever and witty female characters explore femininity, beauty, culture, and most importantly; hair in a fusion of House, Waacking, Vogue, African and contemporary dance. An uplifting blend of club styles fused with African and Contemporary dance, great music, a good dose of humour and HAIR stories!
Olivier Award nominated Lost Dog's new show Juliet and Romeo reveals the real story behind the classic love story at the Capstone Theatre on Friday 9 November. With Lost Dog's blend of dance, theatre and comedy this duet takes on our obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity.

Enter the hypnotic world of MK ULTRA. Rosie Kay's new work is a high energy, supercharged mash-up of thrilling dance, music and imagery. It is inspired by the bizarre realm of pop culture mind control conspiracies, taking a look at myth and popular culture on Saturday 10 November.

Made possible through a Festival Enhancement grant from Culture Liverpool, the festival concludes with Fagin's Twist from Avant Garde. The untold story of Oliver Twist's notorious villain comes to the Epstein Theatre on Monday 12 November, where Street dance meets Victorian workhouse as choreographer Tony Adigun imagines the childhoods of Oliver Twist's villains.
