NON XCHANGE: PRACTICE

2 Jun 2017

NON XCHANGE premieres a new short film made in collaboration with Harley Weir and Grace Wales Bonner. The experimental film scored by Devonte Hynes explores a broad spectrum of dance via the protagonist, Leroy Mokgatle, a 17-year-old ballet dancer from Pretoria, South Africa. Collaging dance scenes spanning across Johannesburg and Cape Town, fantasy and reality intertwine as the extremes of discipline are explored through the people we meet along the way.

We're offering a special multi-buy ticket for all 3 NON XCHANGE events: full price £20, concessions £18, ICA Members £15
