After the huge success of the aerial dance performance “Escape” at Fringe 2017, award-winning LCP Dance Theatre is back with a new dance production “Escape 2”. It is a recreation of its predecessor “Escape” presented at Fringe 2016.
“Modern, moving, muscular & magnificent” (The Mumble Dance)
LCP invites their audiences on a journey of awareness of what’s going on in the world. The contemporary dancers incorporate a new and meaningful movement into a strong imaginary projection with the sensual soundtrack of Stefano Guzzetti. Breaking conventions of pole dance and silk acrobatics.
LCP Dance Theatre draws awareness to human rights violations through dance and presents the emotional journey of a refugee through struggle, despair and the search for freedom. Fusing pole and silks performance with dance theatre ” Escape 2″ explores the impact of a new environment on a refugee, who must face social, political and psychological challenges in order to integrate with a new society.
Quotes on ” Escape” Fringe 2016:
“There is a thought-provoking, muse-immersive piece of theatre, where the stagecraft is marvellous – a blend of film, light & physical use of the silken swing combining into a visual treat. All that is before the dancing; which is modern, moving, muscular & magnificent. The girls are passionate on their own, passionate together, constantly flowing in perfect time to the moody, majestic score by Stefano Guzzetti. When they enter the silken swing, they produce hypnotic & fascinating aesthetics, especially in the triumphant beating heart scene – which is a masterwork of dance theatre – I’ve never seen anything with so much realism, so much quality, so much poetry, in Dance” *****Mumble Dance
“We emerge to the surface gasping for breath, …more alive than before” ****CEEL.ORG.UK (CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPEAN LONDON REVIEW)
“A compelling dance performance dealing with highly relevant issues” UK Theatre
“An interesting performance with a clear purpose” ***Everything Theatre
“LCP Dance Theatre offered something extraordinary” ****Female Art on “I Am”
‘The impeccable execution and the power of the visual imagery is utterly paralysing. “Dance stops trafficking!” they advertise. For me, their dance stopped my heartbeat.” ‘***** Threeweeks Fringe 2013 on “Am I”
“Their bodies seemed to inhale air and exhale this choreography, it came to them with such ease and you could feel the energy breathing from them” **** Broadway Baby Fringe 2014 on ” Am I
