Each work is a daring and very different response to the question ‘What can dance say, today?’. Choreography in galleries, full-bodies dancing, stillness, virtuosity, and overblown masculinity all come under inspection in the arresting collection of works. Durational performance installations happen throughout the day, punctuated by performance re-imagined for the gallery every hour and a half.
Joe performs his compelling solo Decommision, presented alongside the bold all-male ensamble, Arrangement and celebrated trio Observe, commissioned for The Place Prize for dance sponsored by Bloomberg, BAFTA award-winning sound artist Kaffe Matthews performs live and nine local performers join the installation work ‘The Body’.
Audiences are invited to come and go throughout the afternoon, navigating their own journey through the work.
Arrangement is produced by Dance Art Foundation and funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the Stanley Thomas Johnson Foundation. Developed with support from The Place, South East Dance, Movingeast, Artsadmin and Merseyside Dance Initiative.
