He is deaf. He got deaf from being yelled at over the years. Portrait presents several stories about guilt, lack of forgiveness and blameful relationships. The performers explore notions of refuge, morality, hidden obsessions, children’s games and loneliness in a sinister playground scene. To a haunting score, the ensemble of five dancers scurry around the stage, frantically running, blamefully pointing fingers and desperately clapping out approval, as their individual stories unfold in a bizarre ritual of childhood games. Ioana Mona Popovici is an emerging force in the world of contemporary dance. In 2006 she was selected as young choreographer to watch by Ballet Tanz magazine. This commission for Nanohach was awarded the Sazka Prize for Discovery in Dance in 2007.

Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
