After the success of “AM I” (nominated for the Amnesty International award for the best human rights based performance).at the 2013 and 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, LCP Dance Theatre is back with a new dance production “I AM”. LCP Dance Theatre draws awareness to human rights violations through dance and explores the sensual and spiritual journey of recovery for a trafficked victim.
“Am I” explored how victims of sexual exploitation were robbed of their identity and is based on the true story of a victim of human trafficking – Sophie Hayes – author of “Trafficked”.
“I Am” seeks to explore the challenges facing victims on their road to recovery – through therapy and the support of loved ones. It tells the story of how they re-discover their stolen identities – inspired by the true story of a couple who fell in love in their teens, and after some life changing experiences found each other again in their 70’s; This leads to them being able to finally forgive their abusers and reintegrate back into normal society.
LCP’s 2011 remarkable production “Rights(?)” was sponsored by the BBC, in collaboration with the African dance company Tavaziva Dance. LCP Dance Theatre was formed in 2006 and is led by Polish Artistic Director Joanna Puchala who is now based in London. It is a multi-media and multi-ethnic dance company that uses live performance and film to raise awareness of human rights violations.
