30 dance artists seized the opportunity to research performance ideas, and explore new artistic territory.

Choreodrome, The Place’s biennial summer research and development programme for British-based dance makers, returned for 10 weeks from 20 Jul - 27 Sep 2016. As well as free space to research and rehearse, the programme creates a diverse artistic community with regular opportunities for feedback, weekly lunches and demonstrations of work in process. For this edition The Place awarded research bursaries to 12 choreographers.           

New for this edition was also  an exciting partnership with our neighbours Wellcome Collection where three Choreodrome artists and five Work Place artists spent time researching their ideas in the wonderful Reading Room at Wellcome Collection.

At the end of the summer some of the artists took the opportunity to perform their work-in-progress to a public audience in a season of studio performances at The Place called Touch Wood. This process enabled the participants to further refine their project for the stage following feedback from the audience at the end of each session.
