As 2018 comes to a close and we look forward to the start of a New Year, we’re delighted to announce activities at iC4C and beyond for Spring 2019.
Performances and Sneak Peeks
This season we have a couple of sneak peek engagements with artists who are in residence with us at iC4C. Hannah Buckley will be opening the doors to share her work, ‘The Mountain and Other Tales of She Transformed’ at the end of January. And in February we are joined by artists Igor and Moreno for a 2-week residency and invited to see a sneak peek of their new work ‘CAN’T’ that they are developing.
UK Young Artists (UKYA) City Takeover comes to Nottingham, 7 – 13 February 2019. We are partnering with UKYA as a host venue at iC4C for 6 of the young artists presenting their work. With 5 performances and a Sunday Takeover at iC4C, we look forward to hosting an array of work and conversation from Near Miss Company, Maria Popova, Danni Spooner and Carise Zangerle Murray, Jake Walker and Konstantina Skalionta. All events are free, but booking is advised. Details for all the shows and booking links can be found here.
Carrying on a Sunday classic, our next Sunday Supplement will be hosted by Dance4’s Research Artist, Matthias Sperling. We are thrilled that he will be sharing and discussing his new work ‘No-How Generator,’ which is focused around his current practice-based PhD research.
We are very pleased that Katye Coe will continue her inclusive monthly open class from January to April. The classes are available to all those interested in how movement feels. No dance experience is necessary to participate in these classes.
Prior to being invited in to see their work, resident artists will be offering a practical opportunity to engage with audiences. Hannah Buckley is inviting female identifying people to participate in workshops based around her work, and Igor and Moreno will be delivering a workshop for adults. No previous dance experience is needed.
Fevered Sleep will be returning to Nottingham to work with Dance4 on its latest project, ‘This Grief Thing.’ The aim of the project is to encourage discussions surrounding grief and to create an environment for people to share. The project will run in a Nottingham city centre location for 3 weeks. Look out for their billboard popping up near Intu Victoria Shopping Centre soon.
Youth Dance Platforms
U.Dance 2019 platforms get underway this Spring with 6 platforms taking place across the East Midlands region. Youth groups have been selected by a panel of industry professionals to perform their work at 1 of the 6 platforms and one group will be chosen to represent the region at the national U.Dance 2019 event at Southbank Centre this July. Tickets are now available to book at all locations.
