We have created a short retrospective video that showcases just a fraction of the exciting new dance that has been shown in Resolution! over the last 25 years at The Place. Introduced by Eddie Nixon, Theatre & Artist Development Director at The Place, it features early work from well-known choreographers such as Wayne McGregor, Yael Flexer, Gary Clarke and Jasmin Vardimon alongside newer names such as Botis Seva and Kip Johnson.
It was a lot of fun searching through our archives and in the process we came across several different video recording formats from the large Betamax cassettes, through S-VHS and DVD's to flash memory cards. The quality of the recordings has increased vastly over time with each improvement in the camera equipment and the recording formats bringing ever clearer, sharper images and sound. Special thanks to Trinity Laban for help with locating some of the archive footage. We hope you enjoy watching it.
There is also an accompanying restrospective photographic exhibition in the theatre bar at The Place which will be open to the public on each performance night in Resolution!
