Every summer artists occupy The Place’s studios to create and develop new work as part of Choreodrome - The Place’s research and development programme for UK-based dance makers.
Touch Wood offers Choreodrome artists the chance to show a sketch of a work which is in its conception. Short works, bodily notions, speculative research, slapstick solutions, perfect miniatures, embryonic epics, false starts and unforeseen consequences are all part of Touch Wood. For many, this is the first time these fragments are being shown publicly and we welcome you to join them at this point in their process.
Tonight's Touch Wood features works in progress by Dan Watson, Frauke Requardt, Sonia Sabri and The Hiccup Project.*
*Please note this is not necessarily the running order:
This will be an ambitious piece of work that provides potential for rich audience engagement in an innovative & boundary-pushing performance event built around a subject rarely talked about in dance.
Treasure and Tat is a dance piece exploring memory and sentimentality. Over the past two years choreographer Joel O’Donoghue has been collecting stories of people’s most beloved possessions. These stories are the inspiration behind Treasure and Tat.
Chess and Cristina open up the confusing pot of contradictions, clichés and expectations, that face women today; Have lots of sex and be sexy, but not too much. Strive for a good career, but make time for everyone else. Have curves, but don’t be fat. Be assertive, but not bossy… Blimey!
Lovely Girls meanders through real women’s stories using a potent blend of dance, theatre and comedy. It is an insight, a celebration and an ode to being a woman in the 21st century. A show made by women for women and men, and everyone, regardless of gender.
Venue: at The Place
