Amici is a unique dance theatre company integrating able-bodied and disabled artists and performers. Founded in 1980, Amici have had a major impact challenging conventional attitudes about disability and the arts.

“Amici affirms life, creativity and the power of compassion”

Clement Crisp Financial Times

"Totally and utterly inspiring”

The Guardian

The Flying Gorillas are a company of six musicians and dancers presenting dynamic theatrical performances, they have a special interest in working with disabled people and on integrated projects.

“Uncompromising quality for kids”

The Evening Standard, London (Flying Gorillas)

“Superbly choreographed…never fails to capture the imagination of the audience”
The Stage (Flying Gorillas)

Amici return to the Lyric Hammersmith with a triple bill of dance, theatre and music, celebrating the company and their work. The programme includes the new company piece ‘Timestep’ choreographed by Amici artistic director, Wolfgang Stange (guest appearance by The Flying Gorillas), ‘Breaking Out’ a collaboration between Amici’s Bill Robins and Colm Gallagher and ‘Untitled’ choreographed by company member Carol Britten.

Timestep explores the life experiences of 82 year old Amici member Marjorie Crawford, stage name Paddie Dare. In a surrealistic daydream she steps back in time and relives moments from days gone by. Worker's Playtime, ENSA in Normandy, George Formby, Josephine Baker and the liberation of Paris are only part of that journey.

As Cinderella lost her slipper at the magic hour, so Marjorie lost her sense of creative freedom as a child. Is she going to find her "slipper" on this journey? Are we all capable of searching and finding the things that matter to us most? All the Amici members tell this extraordinary story with flashbacks, dream sequences, narration and music.
