Our seasonal platform of work in progress by members of our artist development network, Troop, includes extracts of work by:

Katherine Watson
Shark Daughter is a one woman show about environment and relationships between mothers and daughters, knitted together by toxic plastic and love. From denial to despair to dancing with delight it explores what is really getting in the way of us taking care of our environment.

Katherine Jackson is a performance artist based in Cambridgeshire. She runs Vital Spark Theatre which provides interactive play adventures for children of all ages.

Hazel Lam
To the Lighthouse (working title) is an aerial acrobatics solo exploring the theme of abandonment and solitude.

Hazel Lam is a multi-disciplinary performer and maker trained in music, movement and contemporary circus, with a strong focus in cross-artform collaboration to develop a common language across the Arts. She specialises in working with people from different artistic backgrounds and cross referencing them to create harmonious yet contradicting amalgamations. To the Lighthouse is her first full-length solo where she seeks to highlight feminine movement qualities and power in gentleness.

tick tock  (Sasha Amaya and Naomi Woo)
The Annotated Book Project: A Re-Reading of Antigone. Like John Cage’s prepared pianos, prepared books are unique instruments for creative practice, in this case used to explore subjectivity, memory, authorship, and performance through a re-reading of Antigone.

tick tock (Sasha Amaya and Naomi Woo) focuses on sonic and choreographic performance to produce, interpret, and devise works of opera, dance, and physical theatre. Sasha Amaya is a director focused on choreography, music, and installation art. Naomi Woo is a pianist, conductor, and musicologist who specialises in the study and performance of contemporary music.
