UK PREMIERE 

Brussels-based Argentine choreographer Cecilia Lisa Eliceche comes to London for the first time with a new creation since her noted choreographic debut in 2011. With Unison she focuses on one of the most compelling concepts in choreography: the simultaneous execution of the same movement by several people.

But what does the idea of unison actually suggest? What are the political and even feminist possibilities of this concept? Eliceche asks whether we can redefine the way we experience being together in society through this formal tool. With an enigmatic yet precise ritual, the piece conjures up dance histories and popular traditions, weaving minimalism with complex relationships, subtlety highlighting our physical experience of togetherness.
