“ Intellectually curious, funny and rude, possessed of chameleon stage talents and a taste for risk.” The Guardian (on nora invites)

Who decides what an audience sees? How do we encounter things beyond what we ‘like’? How do we build a diverse and sustainable future for dance?

Over the last months, Nora, the three dancers Eleanor Sikorski, Flora Wellesley Wesley and Stephanie McMann, have been asking themselves and other artists these questions. In this discussion they will share the fruits of this international research alongside guest speaker Hetain Patel.


This event is £5 or FREE if you book it in conjunction with a ticket to Simon Mayer's Sons of Sissy on the same night.

Simply add both to your basket and it will bring the £5 ticket to £0 at checkout. Find out more. 

This talk will be BSL interpreted


About Nora

Previously the duo Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wesley, Nora has now expanded to include Stephanie McMann. Nora established its identity as a dancer-led project in 2015, commissioning and premiering its first programme of duets ‘Nora Invites’, which has been touring since 2016.

Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wellesley Wesley have worked collaboratively and independently for many years: performing improvisation, touring festivals, writing about dance and curating live events. In 2014, with the support of Sadler’s Wells and DanceEast, they formed Nora as a dancer-led project in which they are the curators as well as the dancers. In 2015 they were joined by Stephanie McMann. Currently Nora is touring ‘Nora Invites’, an evening of duets by choreographers Liz Aggiss (UK), Simon Tanguy (FR) and Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion (UK).
