Besieged by an ever shifting and bewildering miscellany of inscrutable and enigmatic props, the last sorry remnants of a legendary music hall family doggedly endeavour to reconstruct fragments of misremembered routines and hazily recollected punch-lines, in a hopeless attempt to revive their all but forgotten Music Hall act.

Lea’s mis-construction of Bartok’s Miraculous Mandarin featuring dancers Eleanor Perry, Harry Alexander, Joshua Ben-Tovim, Anders Duckworth, Ruben Brown and music by Steve Blake is being filmed 23-26 March 2017 in Aarhus town hall, Denmark. This will form part of visual artist and film director Jasmina Cibic’s work Nada 2.
Lea will be conducting research at The University of Roehampton 24th-25th October 2016 with a group of Investigative Dance Researchers. They will be examining the movement styles of Muhammad Ali, Michael Jackson and Janis Joplin. This research will form the basis of new work planned to take place in 2017.
