LDIF17: Autograph

May 5, 2017

Now entering it’s fifth year, Autograph, in partnership with Dance4 and Attenborough Arts Centre is a platform that supports and nurtures emerging artists, commissioning them to develop new work.

The rising talents of Protocol Dance Company, led by choreographer Lanre Malaolu and dance artist Jessica Walker, take to the stage with provocative and innovative pieces exploring multifaceted themes of journey and identity.

Elephant in the Room

Lanre Malaolu Protocol Dance Company

In a world full of fear, image obsession, the need to fit in, and Donald Trump… how do we keep control of the one thing we supposedly have control over? ‘Elephant in the Room’ explores a man’s battle with his ‘self’ and mental illness, and how it shapes the man he becomes, but doesn’t want to be. One voice becomes two, two becomes three… we take a snapshot into his life and how he keeps these inner voices at bay, in an attempt to identify his true inner self

 Grey Matter

Jessica Walker

Jessica Walker returns with fellow Trinity Laban musician Nathen Durasamy to present their collaborative choreography that interrogates the mainstays of the Mixed Race narrative.

An adaptation of her 2015 dance piece ‘Tick the Box (Mixed/Other)’, this work uses playful devices to confront their concerns of binary categorisation and identity perception within the fluid social structures of our New Millennial Age.
