Performances - OPEN Ealing

Upcoming Performances

OPEN is deligted to announce the new project from Hayley Matthews

Home Solo

St Barnabas Church

Saturday 27 April @ 7.30pm

Tickets available via Eventbrite

Home Solo is part of Flying Solo, where three international dance artists with roots in the UK, Ghana and the Caribbean explore their artistry in relation to Home, their roots and the core of who they are. They come together to test that core, in challenging environments close to and far from home, through solo and triple bill performances in Ghana and the UK.

How do we know ourselves, be ourselves, remain ourselves? How do we grow by meeting different places, different people, and stay true? Maybe first we must get lost; honestly, openly, fiercely, and be brave enough to go both far afield and right back Home.

Home Solo will be performed 5 times during 2019 Flying Solo, beginning next door to where Hayley first studied dance as a child, and choreographed her first piece, at Margaret Dance Academy Pitshanger, London, and close to where Hayley grew up in her family of musicians and dancers. In triple bills alongside the two other Flying Solo dance artists at The Peoples Forest, as part of the Waltham Forest Borough of Culture Program, London UK; as part of Day of Dance, Brighton Speigeltent at Brighton Fringe Festival, UK and at Noyam African Dance Institute, Dodowa, Ghana. Returning alone to St Lukes Kentish Town, close to where she lives now in November.

There is a possible performance in Norwich in the autumn also, where Hayley also spends part of her time and finds a creative home.

Home Solo, combines dance by Hayley and live music on the butone, drum, guitar and in song by musician Hej Jones. It journeys with acceptance of the isolation of trauma as an opportunity to grow. It tracks a way back to oneself as one is now, and the sanctuary ones artistry can provide when one feels, due to traumatic experience, that one stands beside oneself.

Dodowa and The Peoples Forest performances will also include a three day intensive lead by all three Flying Solo artists and creative practitioner Martin Gent, open to any independent artist.

The Flying Solo project will be concluded by a closing exhibition by photographer and film maker Al Simmons, who is documenting the project, in December in London.

Flying Solo is a project by ENSEMBLE, an international collection of artists from dance, visuals and sound, founded by dancer Hayley Matthews https://www.ensembledance.org/flying-solo
