As part of the Viking Superhighway project led by Mirador Productions, Belisama was an R&D project exploring 2000 years of the River Ribble. We collaborated with a small team of dance students from UCLAN, the Harris Museum and film maker David Chandler developing ideas and material for a large scale multi-arts performance to be held on the Mariner in Preston.

ASTLEY ILLUMINATED

image6

Over 2000 audience members joined us at Astley Hall on November 21st 2015 to experience LPM's Charnock and Lathom Dances. The promenade performance brought the house alive with dramatic dance, music, light and costume, celebrating two historical marriages reimagined through period and contemporary dance theatre.

LPM collaborated with Zemap Productions to create a dance film which was also screened as part of the event. 

Choreography- George Adams

Music- Dougie Evans

YOU ET VOUS

image7

George Adams created You et Vous as part of the European Commission Integrance. Working with dancers with and without disabilities from European integrated companies, the piece premiered in the National Theatre in Ghent on the 19th of February 2015.

INTEGRANCE focuses on performance as part of a long term project to consolidate recognition of inclusive dance as a key part of performing arts. The four partners collaborating on the initiative are StopGap, Indepen- Dance, Platform K and MicaDanses.

XTRACTOR

image8

LPM were commissioned to create Xtractor as part of the Harris Flights Project in September 2013.

Xtractor, a reality TV roadshow, seeks new talent for  the live show. But when disaster strikes and the booked acts fail to turn up it's down to the audience to save the day!

Excitement, fun, music, comedy and dancing suitable for all ages.


CABARET VOLTAIRE

image9

Blending a plethora of dance styles and integrating arts forms, Cabinet of Curiosities explores our hunger for disposable reality entertainment and the relationship between identity and ego. Five artists, a mezze of acts and all the fun, frolics and raucousness of live entertainment!

Choreographer: George Adams. 

Research and Development collaborators: Helen Gould, Ellen Turner, Giorgio de Carolis, Lindsey Thomas, Mark Whitlaw and Mark Chaundy.


TALL TALES

image10

Peer into the world of the pencil. LPM brings the written word to life. Towering above the crowds stilt walkers move through the space sharing sentiments and stories all  wrapped up in colourful envelopes.

NO BIG DEAL

image11

A double bill of tongue-in-cheek vaudeville and physical theatre styled dance work created by Ellen Turner and George Adams.

SOLITAIRE by George Adams...

Emcee to his own vaudeville style show, Adams struts recklessly about the stage quaffing alcohol, mocking modern culture whilst throwing in the occasional jab to the dance world. Dancing each of his short acts with accuracy and panache.

CAR DOOR MOMENT by Ellen Turner

Ever suddenly have the urge to jump off a train platform? To hit at a random stranger? Or open a car door on the motorway? A mischievous “tongue in cheek” physical dance work that celebrates our most instinctive and impulsive reactions to life.
