The company attempts to deal with current issues affecting women in society, through dance, theatre and multimedia. Our first project, Do You Sell Yourself At Work? (2007) performed at Brighton Festival Fringe 2007, looked at working life and raunch culture and explored situations experienced daily by millions of working women worldwide. Serious questions were raised whilst retaining a lighthearted, occasionally comic tempo. With How Far Are You Willing To Go?, the now expanded company will deal with more universal issues affecting women, still keeping the light, humorous tone which is bound to become the company’s trademark.

An ensemble company, that works through ideas, physicalities and whims via improvisational structures and individual experience. The Ticket’s work is informed by ‘dance theatre’…by exposing humour in art; in existing and past art forms …by enjoying the body as flawed; the body as gendered… by social dance… by the importance of presentation, performance, audience… by theatricalities: the stage, the audience, the framing of performance, the bow, the before and after, the ‘offstage’… by enjoying all dance forms as valid. Lead and developed by Lexi Bradburn.

 

The Ticket Theatre Dance premiered its first full scale piece ‘Cosi fan Tutu’ last year at Siobhan Davies Studios: a little look at Opera through dance and cliché.
