Apple n’ Spice hits Cambridge

Apple ‘N’ Spice is participatory Indo-European family dance show (for children aged 3+). This charming new fairy-tale tells the story of two stepmothers; one from the East and one from the West. As the plot thickens and their stories entwine, the characters need the help of the audience to find their happy ending. The show brings Bharatanatyam, shadow puppetry, contemporary dance and an original music score.

The show is supported by Arts Council England, Hertfordshire libraries, Cambridge Junction, Mercury Theatre, Offbeat Festival-Oxford and Worthing Theatres and Museums.

Fringeward Ho!

Its finally happening! We’re heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival–its been a long road of pandemics, lockdowns, cancellations and postponements… but its finally here. Catch our all-new show on its world premier, Soothe! A thoughtful and rambunctious exploration of the three modes of emotional regulation: threat, drive, soothe. Award-winning artists deliver off-balance, emotive dance theatre embodying the hormones that push, pull and drag us through a post-lockdown society eager for recovery.

The Selfish Giant and Other Stories…
Infusion Physical Theatre brings to life short stories with eye-popping imagination and dynamic physicality! International mime duo Daniel and Melanie Cossette weave stories with and without words into an easy-to-follow laugh-and-wonder show for the whole family. Soar with secret agents on paragliders down to hungry caterpillars on leaves; explore timeless classics from Wilde and Milton, and non-sense poetry from Caroll and Tolkien. An eclectic collection, serious and fun, taken from literature, stories and comics. With elastic agility and the graceful elegance of French style mime, prepare for a show which will be magical and inspiring.

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.
