Life and Other Games

A collaboration with writer Nana Oforiatta-Ayim exploring the theme of gambling through text and its relationship with movement, looking at notions of  faith, certainty and control against those of chance, probability and risk.

This is  a work in progress to be premiered in 2013. 

The video shows our initial ideas for the work, explored during a Choreodrome Research at the Place in 2011. 

The work will be further developed at Residencies in Espaço O Tempo in Portugal and the Place in London.
