Elsabet Yonas

I am a dancer and choreographer, with a foundation in hip-hop. My work is rooted in storytelling and I am inspired by the extensive potentials that art holds in building communities. My work is firmly located within its political context and this informs my work’s visceral delivery and community engagement.

Over the years, I have honed my experience in working with micro, localised community groups, building my practice around people, space and connections. I have regularly facilitated in a range of participatory arts settings including UCL, The Roundhouse, Step In To Dance, LIFT and Talawa. It is these spaces and the individuals in them that have helped craft my artistic voice in my participatory delivery.

My work has been commissioned by and presented at Serendipity, Bernie Grant Arts Centre, The Place, Arts Admin, Barbican, Lisa Ullman, Breakin’ Convention, Zinnema, and Tempo Festival amongst others.

REASONS YOU SHOULD(N’T) LOVE ME

Written and performed by Amy Trigg

Sat 1 October 2022 | 7.30pm

For a long time I didn’t know how it’d work.
Or what I’d be able to feel.
People would ask me if I could have sex and I’d feign shock and act wildly offended whilst secretly wanting to grab them by the shoulders and be like “I don’t know, Janet!”

Juno was born with spina bifida and is now clumsily navigating her twenties amidst street healers, love, loneliness – and the feeling of being an unfinished project.

Winner of the Women’s Prize for Playwriting 2020, Amy Trigg’s remarkable debut play REASONS YOU SHOULD(N’T) LOVE ME is a hilarious, heart-warming tale about how shit our wonderful lives can be.
