A series of provocations about where is a place to dance. Over the course of four days, you will experience dialogue, debate and performance looking at dance placed outside of traditional spaces.

A  number of artists will attempt to explore this, question and share their thinking about dance within primarily visual arts-based institutions including galleries, dance that happens in our urban spaces and landscapes and dance that offers the opportunity for the public to commission, create and perform.

A Place to Dance includes 4 sessions:

Session 1: Dance: Galleries & Visual Arts – A provocation by Dance4 Associate Artist Joe Moran.

Session 2: Dance: Architecure, The Body & The Environment– A Provocation by Dr Jonathan Hale

Session 3: Dance: Art and ResearchRosanna Irvine & Sara Giddens.

Session 4: Dance: The Politics of Involving the Public as Creator, Performers & Commissioners – A Provocation by Dance4 Associate Artist Gillie Kleiman.

A Place to Dance also included a walking performance by Alison Lloyd – A Long Dance and a Short Walk. Comissioned and produced by Dance4.
