The Tobacco Factory is thrilled to present the return of Bodyworks 2, the second series of our short programme of international and local dance and physical performance. Bodyworks 2 showcases the best of western contemporary dance and physical theatre alongside classical and contemporary dance from non-western cultures. Bodyworks 2 continues to be an exciting new initiative for the Tobacco Factory Theatre and for dance in Bristol specifically. Artists and audiences will benefit from the juxtaposition of classical and modern, which will give contemporary dance audiences a new understanding some of the deep, primal sources of dance and in turn enthral lovers of traditional dance when they see the journeys that dance has taken and is now taking. Ali Robertson, Director of the Tobacco Factory Theatre says “I’m delighted that we have been able to put together such a thrilling programme for the second Bodyworks. From the highly physical, multimedia dance piece Body of Work, through the traditional and contemporary Indian dance of Daredevas to internationally acclaimed hip/hop from Bristol’s The Dark Angels, I believe that this programme is full of surprises and delights for dance audiences in Bristol.” First up MotionManual’s Body of Work, four dancers from backgrounds ranging from urban and African influences investigate their physical heritage through skilfully crafted anatomical autobiographies. MotionManual is an international collective of artists from different performance backgrounds, founded in Leeds by Manuela Berndt.

Daredevas presented by Akademi in Association with Asian Arts Agency is a showcase of the brightest young talents in contemporary Indian dance. The British Theatre Guide says “This show is a real treat. An excellent opportunity to see more of the wealth of talent among British-Asian communities and be transported by the beauty of the dance.” On Friday 5th June F.A.B. - The Detonators put the ‘extra’ into an ordinary life with their intense, energetic physical theatre. Extraordinary uses a wide range of techniques they create theatrical extravaganzas which are a distinctive and vigorous mix of dance movement, music and comedy theatre. “Hugely enjoyable, laugh-out-loud dance theatre!”*****Venue magazine. Bodyworks 2 finishes with an exhilarating double bill of The Dark Angels and Green Apples, combining the raw, muscular work of internationally admired choreographer Mark Bruce next to the electrifying new talents of Bristol-based Angels Dance Academy. The Dark Angels are internationally acclaimed (winners of 2008’s hip hop division of the adult world dance championships), also performing are the Seraphins (British junior hip/hop champions and also recent winners in Las Vegas) and the Shadow Angels. Angels Dance Academy, based in Knowle, Bristol was founded 5 years ago with the aim of increasing young people’s physical activity through hip/hop dance. Green Apples choreographed by Mark Bruce to the music of the White Stripes is a commanding duet performed in the round. Separated from the performers only by a rope, the audience is drawn into a visceral and immediate experience as the dancers circle themselves and each other in a space of physical intensity and magnetic energy.
