Nora Invites…

This brilliant two-hander at Laban Theatre featured Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wellesley Wesley interpreting works by choreographers Jonathan Burrows & Matteo Fargion, Simon Tanguy and Liz Aggiss.The Burrows/Fargion creation was like the call-and-response of a gospel song as each dancer took turns to answer, indeed echo, the other’s movements. Tanguy’s piece, inspired by Beckettian absurdism, featured the pair at their athletic and whimsical best and Aggiss’s contribution – Bloody Nora! – was a hypnotic cocktail of crimson costumes, gold-plated vision and red-blooded humour. In fact, the whole evening was a heady mix of fun, laughter, skill, beauty and deeply affecting emotion.
