Edinburgh Fringe Festival

5-13 August 2022

Soothe

Dive into the pre-frontal cortex for an off-balance and emotive exploration of the three modes of emotional regulation: threat, drive, soothe. With grace and athleticism Soothe looks at the adrenaline, dopamine, and oxytocin that push, pull and drag us through life.

This 4-cast ensemble brings to life the movement of mental well-being in a thoughtful and rambunctious examination of the psychological systems that make us tick. With this new contemporary dance theatre work, award winning Infusion Physical Theatre weaves together non-traditional partnering and original music to follow the cravings of a post-lockdown society eager for recovery.

Return to the Stage

After 19 months of Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions, Infusion was pleased to take to the stage for English audiences just a week ago. Partnering with longstanding friends (we call them our sister company) E33 Dance Company, we were pleased to perform to an wonderful audience at the Battersea Exchange, London.

Audience shared tears of joy and relief, and moments of comfort–many leaving the event saying they felt “lighter” and “fuller.” The show We’re Gonna Be Okay, was devised from personal stories of the dancers, and looking for hope and healing after the tumultuous past year-and-a-half.

Don’t miss out on our upcoming mime workshops!

Two Saturdays! Feb 27th & Mar 6th

3-5pm UK time

Each week will be different: Focus will be on physicalization of a character and emotion in movement. Following that will be corporeal architecture and shaping the invisible world.

The majority of the workshop will introduce concepts of movement from the Marceau-style of mime, creating a diving board for you to develop your own creative practice. Both sessions will include moments for you to make your own sketches and movement experiments, to develop practical application of the techniques explored.

This course will be fantastic for actors, dancers, movement enthusiasts, business professionals and students. Grow your understanding of body language, posture, control, communication. Inspire greater levels of clarity and dynamic in characters, expression, and embrace the mystére of movement.
