Two to Tune

Two to tune is an adrenaline-charged game, focused on a confrontation between two competitor-collaborators, an homage to the feeling of magnetic synchronicity it’s possible to experience with another person. Commissioned by The Place, this sports-inspired duet sees two dancers playfully locked together in a dance densely packed with fiercely contrasting flashes of images: an animal spying on prey; pogo dancers sharing a groove; lovers breathing; wrestlers as they embrace; kids playing rock, paper, scissor; magnets as they attract and repulse. This quick-fire imagery stitches the work together to create an intense, sweaty and vigorous performance

Mitch Benn: Don’t Believe A Word

“I’m a sceptic. But don’t take my word for it. Or indeed anybody’s. For anything....” and this is the basic premise of Mitch’s new critically acclaimed show. It’s a show that will make you laugh a lot and think a bit as Mitch debunks myths, exposes nonsense and grapples with the very nature of knowledge itself extolling the virtues of an evidence-based approach to life with amusing consequences and of course a few songs along the way.

A team of artists worked overnight to lay a giant 400 square metre canvas over the surface of the capital’s iconic landmark, complete with matching geology and Mars Rover prototype.
