Over 26 nights we present 78 companies ready to test the limits of dance through bold ideas and movement. This year Akademi, Breakin’ Convention, Jacksons Lane and Rambert are joining us on our mission to bring new talent on stage.
Resolution is the place to discover the unexpected, to sample future performance trends before they migrate to larger stages and possibly discover the next big thing in dance. Almost all of today’s top UK-based contemporary choreographers presented their earliest work at this platform, including Wayne MacGregor, Hofesh Shechter, Kate Prince, Luca Silvestrini and more recently Tony Adigun, James Cousins and Sarah Blanc.
With an uncompromising attitude of experimentation this year’s choreographers draw on diverse movement styles from hip hop to South Asian dance, circus to contemporary, ballet to ballroom. Using this rich language they comment and explore themes of gender, sexuality, social change, immigration, cultural traditions, literature, science and love.
Our team of 15 writers will attend every night to provide a critical response to every show. This year the reviewers are;
Editor: Josephine Leask (London Dance)
Catherine Love (Exeunt)
Donald Hutera (The Times)
Graham Watts (Dance Tabs, Dancing Times)
Lyndsey Winship (Evening Standard)
Sanjoy Roy (The Guardian)
and cohort of new writers
Anna Rachael McBride
Offering two perspectives of the works in each triple bill, the reviews are posted on this blog (usually within 24 hours of the performance).
