IZINDAVA is dynamic, bold and breathtaking to watch. Bawren Tavaziva’s new work explores human fragility within our changing world.

Beautiful yet haunting and provocative, Izindava unearths raw emotions that are unsettling and unforgettable. Bawren’s unbridled and intricate movement synthesises ballet, contemporary and African dance styles and is performed by a cast of stunning dancers with a film-scape of street life in Harare. Izindava translates as ‘news’ in the Zimbabwean language Shona.

Bride-to-be Claire is not going to make a speech at her wedding. No way. She’s just not that type of person. But what if being timid is a good thing? What if being scared is just you starting an adventure? And so it is that a morning’s outing to the shops turns into a 24-hour odyssey where our heroine-in-pyjamas tries to locate her brave bone.

A new solo performance of songs and spoken word from Catherine Ireton exploring small acts of courage and how they can be as contagious as fear.

Winner of Brighton Fringe Music Award 2016

With its entire soundscape created live on stage, directly from the amplified and recorded movement of the performer, The Amplitude aims to create resonance with its audience by offering a highly immersive experience of sound in movement.
