Yamina Lyara is a multi-disciplinary movement artist, somatic facilitator and creative director working and collaborating throughout the creative field. Her practice is rooted in holistic embodiment, creating sacred spaces and facilitate self expression in its boundless forms. “The body is a gateway and map to true inner standing, self discovery and authentic being.” She believes in creativity as a tool to create new realms and through the home coming of the individual to serve and empower the collective. 

Her current work “Tongues Untied” researches and explores the innate wisdom enmeshed in our untamed bodies. It dives and conveys the unseen worlds within and without, our relationship to the earth and honours matriarchal principles. In the search of re-enchanting ourselves with our raw and unleashed expression.

Both alumni of London Contemporary Dance School, Rebecca Douglass and Tasha Hess-Neustadt’s collective artistic research and practice centres around the idea of cyberspace as a container for and extension of one’s many selves beyond the material world. Within the digital sphere, they are interested in queering the representation of bodies, gender, identity, and story, imagining a poly-form digital dance practice.

Rebecca and Tasha together have self-produced three projects: a live performance-then-film entitled ‘erms?’,and a two-evening multidisciplinary online festivals presenting the works of 15 international artists. Their next collaborative creative venture is a Screendance commission for the Festival International de Vidéo Danse de Bourgogne.
