This lecture/demonstration will feature a section of Yael Flexer’s new work Weightless, alongside a 30-minute conversation and Q&A session. Weightless carries Yael’s recognisable stamp of witty text and humour combined with emotionally driven physicality and tight, complex choreographic composition. For this work she has strengthened her relationship with long-term collaborator Nic Sandiland who has developed a sound and AV installation as part of the live performance.

Weightless is the next show in a long line of hits from Israeli choreographer Yael Flexer, whose work has received critical acclaim over the past 20 years. Nic also has a large following, having built a reputation for creating exciting, ground-breaking work with new digital technologies.

Both Yael and Nic will be part of this lecture/demonstration and will be available to answer questions about the work.
