Acclaimed international choreographer Lola Maury curates an exciting evening of dance for Hull Dance with three quirky shows – each involving voice, singing and props.
Nora’s duet BLOODY NORA! is a hilarious detour into a wild and esoteric world which Liz Agiss conjures. Programmed alongside Hull’s own Spaceboy with his David Bowie inspired Hallo Spaceboy and Bridlington’s finest up-and-coming dance maker James Morgan.
An evening of high quality contemporary works set to lift you into strange and fun worlds under the cover of sunny Fruit warehouse.
Featuring works from
Nora – BLOODY NORA!
The gutsy dance duo, ‘Nora’, brings you BLOODY NORA! by Liz Aggiss. This is a story of competitiveness, hormones and friendship where shit tricks become cheap laughs, and a Bach is worse that its bite. BLOODY NORA! is inspired and framed by clippings, offcuts, personal history, archives and assorted individuals: Malvina McGuire, Niddy Impekoven, Max Wall, Hilde Holger, an enthusiastic sock seller in Singapore and domestic drivel.

Spaceboy – Hallo Spaceboy
Hallo Spaceboy charts the final moments of Tom, an astronaut stranded in outer space. Full of humour and crippling self -doubt, Spaceboy guides us though Tom’s world of dramatic impossibilities with a song, a dance, and just a little bit of masturbation. Part surreal rock gig, part tragic admission of failure, part cheap David Bowie rip-off, Hallo Spaceboy invites you to lace up your moonboots and leave the capsule, if you dare.
James Morgan – A dance for the end of the world
Inspired by big budget catastrophe movies, wedding speeches and town hall fetes, James Morgan is here to prepare you for one last goodbye. This is a communal celebration of the apocalypse. Sit back and put aside the gory details of climate change, global politics and war because when the dancing stops, the world will end.
