Lost Duets from Yippeee!!! 2006, Performed from Hidden Locations for your Entertainment by students from Trinity Laban as part of the Historical project. 

In this work the dancers were taken through the same process to create duets as the original dancers in Yippeee!!! 2006. The huge difference of course was that the dancers were in lockdown. We used this opportunity to examine the nature of a duet and to ask the question- How can a duet be created when the partners are not in the same location? This is result of that investigation.

Elvis Legs (QM) We made it!

Thank you very much to everyone who generously supported our Kickstarter campaign to create Elvis Legs (Quarantine Mix). We raised £13,134 in total and we have already started work on the film. No release date yet but coming very soon.

Elvis Legs (Quarantine Mix)

I have launched a Kickstarter campaign to create a new filmed version of Elvis Legs, first created for The Featherstonehaughs Go Las Vegas in 1995. This project will incorporate 3 casts of Elvis legs (9 dancers) who will perform and film the dance at home, creating a 9 panel Quarantine Mix. This project will pay unemployed dancers languishing at home to dance and will be free to watch for a lockdown audience. !8 days to go to raise the full sum. . . .

Los Amores De Marte Y Venus

Lea has been commissioned by the British Council to create a new work for Danza Contemporanea de Cuba in Havana. The new piece is based on a work by English choreographer John Weaver (1673-1760) entitled The Loves of Mars & Venus, which was premiered in London in 1717. Lea is working with 25 dancers with new  music by Steve Blake, costume and staging design by Simon Vincenzi and lighting design by Simon Corder. The work will receive its premiere in Havana at the Alicia Alonso Theatre in Havana on the 28th September 2018.
