STDMA at Tanzmesse

I am very excited to be taking part in Tanzmesse in Dusseldorf for the first time.  I am joining five other independent dance producers (Annabel Dunbar, Phillip Hargreaves, Sarah Shead, Xavier de Sousa and Lydia Wharf) as part of the Dance from England team at this major international showcase of dance which brings together upwards of 1200 professional delegates from around the world.

Join us in the Exhibition Hall every day Thursday 1 – Saturday 3 September 9.30 – 1430.  It’s Booth No. 100, so easy to remember!  On Friday 2nd between 1.15pm and 2.15pm I shall be taking over the booth to present work by an eclectic group of dance artists I am currently working with:

Company Chameleon
Darren Pritchard
Didy Veldman |  Umanoove 
The Hiccup Project
Lea Anderson | Cholmondeleys
Luca Silvestrini’s Protein

Dance from England is part of Dance Is Great, an initiative funded by UK Trade and Investment, British Council and Arts Council England, which is being produced by Dance4 on behalf of National Dance Network.

Body of Light on tour

Body of Light is a contemporary dance solo created by Darren Pritchard using readily available consumer technology to translate movement into beautiful projected imagery, in much the same as a painter uses brushstrokes.  Performed by dancer Adam Russell Body of Light is a collaboration with Production Designer Marcel LeNormand, a digital artist from Guernsey.

Body of Light is a fully tourable and self-contained work, with an extended stay and play session following each performance so the public can make their own video projections. It is suitable for arts and non-arts spaces, is festival-ready and has applications in education and health settings.

Upcoming tour dates:

3 & 4 September       Peterborough Festival
23 & 24 September  Gravity Fields Festival
