LCP engages with another dance theatre project in cooperation with artists Mary Hatzisavva from Greece and Siemie Di from Congoo. Mary brings to the stage years of experience as a movement artist with strong background in acting, physical theatre, singing and dancing. Siemie is a self-proclaimed westernised African embracing his classical influences and African traditions to create an African/Indian/European fusion in his unique jazz style. For over years Siemie has been a popular session drummer/percussionist who has worked with variety of artists from S Club to David Bowie and Elvis Costello.
Recruiting the ‘chance procedure’ and some of the choreography choices, ‘Taking chances’ is a selection of four independent artists, where live music, vocal, dance rhythms, rays of improvisation and a hint of exploration of Laban dimension scale, takes the audience over the hill and to the colourful landscape of contemporary dance theatre.
