Fight Club (Findings After Five Sessions)

Athina Vahla

Fight Club (Findings After Five Sessions) by Athina Vahla

A collaboration between choreographer Athina Vahla, dancer Leon Baugh and boxer and trainer father/son duo Gary and Michael McCarthy from Repton Boxing Club in Bethnal Green. Fascinated by the rituals and rhythms of boxing and enthused to explore its similarities to dance movement, Athina has used her Homelands Commission to begin an exploration of a unique dance-sport movement language by establishing a relationship with this historic boxing club and presenting her findings to an audience. Five initial sessions have been held at both Chisenhale and Repton and the work has been documented by film-maker Monica Alcazar and photographer Helen Burrows. There will be a presentation of work followed by a chance to feedback and ask questions.
