Comebacks I thought of later at The Place.
Have you ever kicked yourself not being more quick-witted? Or re-played a conversation in your head that you wish had gone differently? This is about that. These are tales of sex and sassy comebacks, where things are turned on their head. Tragedy becomes beauty, regret becomes comedy and the mundane wonders and traumas of life are laid bare.
I am thrilled to be sharing the an evening with May-We-Go-Round? by THE HICCUP PROJECT.

Dive into a 360 degree evening of in-the-round choreographies from the hottest happening dancemakers this side of the canal. Envelop yourself in the liveness; drop dead on the dancefloor.
Lilly Pöhlmann & Tora Hed | Screws for Fixing

Eleanor Sikorski | Big hands, big heart
Eleanor will be performing an improvised solo, sharing a triple bill with Collective Endeavours and Steve Noble.
A triple bill of improvised movement and music from Glasgow and London.
Collective Endeavours from Glasgow believe in taking dance to places where it isn't usually shown and spend a lot of time working on music/dance group improvisation. For their second show at I K L E CT I K , there will be Joan Cleville, Solène Weinachter and Nerea Gurrutxaga dancing, Caroline Krabbel (sax) and Jer Reid (guitar). There will be a solo from Eleanor Sikorski, and also drumming by Steve Noble.
Eleanor Sikorski will perform an improvised solo, bending the truth and twisting the space. With no plan, other than to embrace fiction and fantasy, she will play with movement, story telling and sound.
LONDON TOPOPHOBIA 13
Blooms in the Desert of London
LONDON TOPOPHOBIA is an artist-led group running performance events in London.
They are a group of artists, working with sound/music composition, choreography/dance research and performance, performance art, electronics and light/sound installation.
London Topophobia is a meeting point for makers to share and air performance works at different points in the creative process. It exists both as a useful point of departure for artists, and as an alternative take on what the London performance scene has to offer in the current political and economic climate.
As part of their Nomadic series, they will be returning to an exciting off-the-radar space in Hackney to host an extra special night of performances.
£6 on the door
Trip the Light | Intercontinental Drifts is a monthly platform (February-July 2016) where cutting edge choreography from across Europe and the UK meet. A night of new moves, new waves and new choreographic terrain.

Doors open @ 6pm

'The Face to Face'
by James Morgan, Esther Siddiquie and Alex Springer
"They stood facing one another, both silently demanding, 'thou shalt not kill me'. In an attempt to do justice to 'the other', two bodies negotiate an impossible process of joint decision making.
'Come-backs I thought of later'
by Eleanor Sikorski
"Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought" (Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1820). Sikorski takes some relatively shit experiences and turns them into great entertainment.
by Nina von der Werth
"We enter the restaurant. We take a table in the corner. I move his chair back slightly so he can sit, then sit facing him". A long hard look at the gender prejudices we subject ourselves to daily.
