Regardless of whether you have an interest in contemporary dance or not, there is something to be found for everyone.

Maya Pindar, The Insanity in Dancing

 

The evening embraced a wide selection of disciplines – some rooted in centuries-old ideas – but all brimming with ideas and artistic intention. […] I think it’s fair to say that it [the Q&A session] was very enlightening for all concerned.

Michael Davis, Breaking the Fourth Wall

double pendulum by Helen Cox

When two pendulums connect the movement becomes complex and uncertain. Acting as a metaphor for the interdependent relationships we have with people close in our lives, we find that the stronger the connection, the greater the complexity. In double pendulum we see two people push, pull, flourish and falter, but never stop.

 

 

Living with Sin by Lucidez Dance

Living with Sin by Lucidez Dance

Living with Sin asks how Eve’s original sin has affected womanhood throughout history. In how far may ancestors’ experiences of culture and religion affect subsequent generations? One woman embodies womanhood throughout the ages. In her, all experiences are united.

The Way They Were Then by Feet off the Ground Dance

 

The Way They Were Then is an idiosyncratic and stirring work inspired by ‘Mujeres’ – Eduardo Galeano’s collection of short stories about women. Executed in three distinct episodes and driven by live multi-instrumentalist Alex Paton’s rousing music, this piece conjures up mini worlds, taking the audience on a unique journey.

Stadtkörper – photography exhibition curated and co-created by Elisabeth Schilling

The exhibition STADTKÖRPER is a collaborative project between a dancer and photographers. Created in 2013, the work took inspiration in the architectural city scape of the Berlin of today. Dance, an artform of the presence unites with the still image of photography; thus atmospheres, expressions, shapes and impressions are being captured.
