A Suitcase for All Occasions – 17th March 2012 at the Old Fire Station

I was not sure what to expect from Paulette Mae’s A Suitcase for All Occasions. It was very well attended, and the atmosphere built up outside as we all waited in the foyer to be let in.

Open Dance Theatre Rehearsal

Paulette Mae, who is currently devising the dance theatre piece A Suitcase for all Occasions for the Dancin Oxford Festival, would like to invite you to an Open Rehearsal on Monday March 12th, 4-5pm at the Pegasus Theatre, Magdalen Road, Oxford, OX4 1RE.

The piece explores our attachment to people, objects and space and the power of attachment to transform our personal worlds onto extraordinary landscapes.

Drop in behind the scenes and experience the final stages of dance theatre in the making. See how material gathered from personal stories, images and words are refined and brought to life.

As well as being a fly on the wall, there will be the opportunity to share your experiences of the material/process and ask the dancers – Ana Barbour, Anja Meinhardt and Paulette Mae – any questions towards the end of the rehearsal.

Places limited, so booking recommended. If you would like to book a place or find out more please email paulettemae@ymail.com

The work being rehearsed is for an upcoming triple bill of dance theatre at Arts at the Old Fire Station on 17th March, 8pm. More information can be found at http://www.dancinoxford.co.uk
