east london dance at Stratford Circus presents Henri Oguike Dance Company (Thu & Fri 6-7 Dec)
Renowned for his vigorous, intricate and strong sense of musicality, Jerwood
Choreography Award winner Henri Oguike and his company present a
Programme of four contrasting dance pieces including two new works: Shot
Flow, a duet performed by Henri Oguike and Alicia Herrero-Simon, in
collaboration with fast rising Portuguese composer Pedro Carneiro and lighting
designer Guy Hoare; melancholy thoughts, a sextet to four of Astor Piazzolla's
passionate and highly contemporary neuvo tango compositions for violin and guitar.
Henri Oguike Dance Company also present the acclaimed A moment of give, an
emotionally charged quartet set to Shostakovitch's piano trio No.2 in E minor and
Ile Aye, a light-hearted quintet danced to a medley of popular Brazilian songs by
renowned artist Caetano Veloso.
Henri Oguike Dance Company, recent Time Out Live Awards 2001 winner as 'Most Outstanding New Dance Company', is passionate about the relationship between music and dance and three of the four pieces will be performed to live music. All choreography is by Henri Oguike.
