Dance Umbrella: Philippe Saire - Hocus Pocus at The Place

Saturday, 2pm & 5pm, The Place

Hocus Pocus

 

Voyage into the unknown with this dreamlike spectacle, a bewitching gem of a family show, in which gravity dissolves, bodies bravely contort and optical illusions conjure other worlds.

Out of the darkness strange shapes appear as if from nowhere, illuminated by horizontal strips of white light. From here the fantasy into space begins, contained in a stark frame, as two adventurers overcome fear to boldly navigate creatures of the deep, brotherly rites of initiation and flying contraptions.  

Leaving room for the imaginations of children aged 7+ to soar, this international hit features two awesomely dextrous performers, vivid costumes and eerie props.

From June-August 2019, a group of 13-18 year olds learnt from professional filmmakers at HCA to conceptualise, shoot and edit their own film exploring Identity, inspired by major exhibition, ‘Get Up Stand Up Now’, at Somerset House which celebrates the past 50 years of Black creativity in Britain and beyond.
