Piece By Piece



 

Piece By Piece Company was founded in 2006 by theatre artist Berit Kuennecke and dancer/choreographer Despina Mavrou. 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 dealt with more universal issues affecting women, still keeping the light, humorous tone which is bound to become the company’s trademark.

Lîla Dance



 

Lîla Dance finds its inspiration for creativity in exploring the synergies between highly physical exertions with sensitivity of thought. The company members regard themselves as “movement inventors” who treat every new work as an exciting opportunity to discover original movement which finds expression through articulate physicality. During each creative process Lîla Dance immerse themselves in images and ideas which are explored with intuition and spontaneity in order to find “physical sensations” expressive of a gut response from the flesh and nerve.

 

With each new work the company continues to develop a distinctive physical language of which complicated floor sequences, trademark physicality and intricate contact work can be identified as choreographic traits.

mdance



  As a performative company, mdance is interested in exploring intricate, emotive and physical movement that evokes thought and feeling in both themselves as performers and their audiences. The collaborative nature of the company means that we can draw creatively from both of our experiences, bringing two bodies, minds and souls to the creative space. We are interested in producing intelligent work with an emphasis on the process and how a piece comes to form. It’s as much about the journey of making, of thought and of feeling as it is about the presentation of the body, the physical and the piece.

Dam Van Huynh



Van Huynh Company was founded in 2008 to further the exploration of the human body and its relationship through time and space. Inspired by everyday life and people, Dam’s choreographies are grounded in reality and dig further to access a deeper layer of conscience. The Company selects movements and attitudes to process this information by expanding and exaggerating the observed gestures. The result is a physical dance creating a sense of surrealism, where the capacities of the human body are explored to its extremes and infinite details become prominent.

Dam Van Huynh won the audience prize on each of the ten nights of The Place Prize in 2008.

Ji Park



Ji Park’s choreography is based on abstract movement. The basis of her work is spontaneous and instinctive, which is influenced by her South Korean origin and it is particularly difficult to dancers trained in the western contemporary dance tradition. Her vocabulary is very fast-paced and based upon the combination of very short and sharp sequential phrases.

 

She has previously performed her work at Cloud Dance Festival with Transient Dance Theatre.
