BeautifuL , 9th March 2018, 19:30 at DanceEast, Jerwood Dance House, Foundry Lane, Ipswich (15.8 miles)
Following a sell-out performance in 2016, Sally Marie's company Sweetshop Revolution returns to the Jerwood Dancehouse with a brand new piece of dance theatre.
BeautifuL encompasses movement and text, exploring love and sexuality from the point of view of women; what is fantasised about, desired and permissible within the complex web of social structures, expectations and cultural history.
Extraordinary dancers will lead us through their own experience of sexuality and love, and this is contrasted with an exploration of the history of women's sexuality over the last three hundred years.
This piece, along with looking at gender, will also be celebrating the solidarity of woman, taking femininity to a more truthful place, past the gloss of media spin and pressure to conform. BeautifuL is a doorway into a dialogue about how women and men are experiencing relationships, sexuality and the body right now. And at the heart of it lies a question: how do we love and how has it changed?

Bounceability meet at 157 Colchester Road, Colchester Road, West Bergholt, Colchester (8.9 miles)
Bounceability is something we are born with. Think about a child learning to walk. No matter how many times they might stumble and fall, they get right back up again and try again until they get it right. The trouble is that as we grow up our view of the world is shaped and fashioned by our experiences, and sometimes we become fearful of trying again. We get stuck into negative patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking and sometimes just don't know how to change. Have you got stuck or just forgotten how to be happy? Have you given up trying? Maybe you could use some Bounceability.
So whether you feel as if you are in a rut but can't figure out how to get out of it; if you have made bad choices and are struggling with the consequences of your decisions; if you have a bad habit that you want to eliminate; if you want to lose weight or stop smoking; if your nerves are getting the better of you or if something outside your control has had an impact on your life, or whatever is stopping you from living the life of your dreams, you need some Bounceability.
