Eva Recacha will lead a class for small children and their accompanying adult/s to have fun together, exploring rhythm, shapes and different movement activities and patterns, adapted to the different ages of the children. We will engage in some partnering work, swinging, rocking, carrying and developing bonding with our child through contact. Each child will need an accompanying adult to play and dance with. The class is for both child and adult to do together.

What to wear: Loose comfortable clothing.

Exercises might include rolling, crawling or sitting on the floor, so bring clothes very comfy to wear.

  • Eva’s choreographic practice to date revolves around the following concerns: scepticism, the role of the performers as individuals, text as part of the choreographic fabric, and the politics of performance in terms of who acts under who’s command, under what premises, and for who or for what?
  • Eva was selected as a Place Prize Finalist in 2011 with Begin to Begin: A Piece about Dead Endsand in 2013 with The Wishing Well, whichwon the public prize on three occasions. Her work has appeared in Time Out’s Best of the Year and has been presented in the UK and at festivals in Europe.
  • In 2012 Eva was a recipient of the Marion North Mentoring Award and was subsequently mentored by Portuguese choreographer Rui Horta. During that time she conceived and produced Easy Rider, her first full-length work which premiered at The Place Spring Loaded season 2014. Later that year Eva was invited to curate a Wild Card evening at Lilian Baylis Theatre, Sadler’s Wells.
  • In 2015 Eva initiated a research called Afterlife,with residencies at The Place, the Wellcome Reading Room, and the Manchester Metropolitan University. During this research she conceived the idea for Aftermath of a Very Accomplished Failure, a new full-length work commissioned by Sadler’s Wells that will premiere in 2018 and tour throughout 2019.
