Olas is the first production of Casual Sister, a collaborative company formed in 2014 amongst a group of M.A. students at Central St Martins College of Art and Design in London. During a two-month period residence in Spain, Casual Sister worked with actors and producers in Lebrija and Jerez, and immersed in a collaborative process to develop a work of time duration for living inspired by the people of Andalusia.
With collaborators from Ecuador, England, Russia, Poland, South Korea, Japan, USA, France, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Cyprus, Casual Sister made exchanges of ideas, experiences, interests, skills, ways of working, languages, views, to explore the themes of work, travelling, immigration, tourism, memory, dreams and desire. Olas is a multi-media work of video and projections, dramatic arts, contemporary dance, staging, costumes, make-up, lighting design, music and sound, and text that investigating the possibilities with the scene and the narrative form.
