An unfolding of a movement and musical creation, looking at the relationship between the audible and the visual. A rhythmical journey in time and space, through duration and measure, addition, division and subdivision, repetition and change, similarity and difference.

Tania Soubry studied at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance, at LABAN, at the London Contemporary Dance School and at Goldsmiths. In summer 2002 she was a dance web participant in Vienna. She danced for some companies, i.e. Zephyr in Zanussi and Small Room Dance, and (dance) artists, i.e. Vangelis Legakis and Annick Pütz,  as well as in collaborations and within the collective Explorer. Since 2003 she creates her own work, such as Wholly, a solo touring as part of the Dance Roads Festival in Europe , the trio it (instead of twenty-one-words), shown at Les Repérages, France, the solo Back to the roots with Jimy, performed at the Luxembourg Dance Festival, Nancy and Zagreb, the Deborah Hay solo adaptation I’ll crane for you and a duet with musician an dperformer Sam Alty called Two people coming together, both performed among others at the Place in London. In September 2013 she premiered a new choreography for four women and musician Nuno Brito, with whom she is currently doing a one year Boost Program consisting of 8 residencies over 2013-2014, working on a movement and sound, music and dance project towards a duet entitled beat’n’shine.


Nuno Brito is a classically trained Percussionist graduating from Escola Profissional de Artes da Beira Interior, Portugal in 2001.  He also has a Drum-Kit BMus in Popular Music Performance from The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London 2010. Over the years Nuno’s love for performance has taken him a long way, from Classical and Wind Orchestras to Jazz and Pop Music acts. From 2007 through 2011 he was the drummer for the band “The Magic Tombolinos” with whom he recorded two albums and toured Europe. This included TV performances on Channel 4 and the BBC as well as playing international festivals such as “Womad” and “Glastonbury” in England, “Boom” in Portugal and “Ostrava” in Czech Republic to name a few. Since 2007 Nuno has been working with the Music Services in London delivering workshops and courses in percussion and drum-kit for various schools, alongside leading regular drum circles workshops with people of all ages and ability. Nuno is currently developing H2drOp, an original idea that involves making music combining  various “instruments” with water. Nuno is working with a dedicated team of like-minded individuals to further develop and deliver the H2drOp experience.
