From time to time people tell us that although they’ve watched dance performances and enjoyed them they wouldn’t mind having some kind of ‘user’s guide’ to contemporary dance.“Is it one style or many? How does it relate to other kinds of dance? Does it have a particular meaning?”
So we decided to commission dance writer and critic Sanjoy Roy and animator Magali Charrier to create a short series of films introducing the world of dance. We asked them to combine gentle humour and real ideas. To be light-hearted but not lightweight, if you like.
