Touch Wood

A season of raw ideas danced on a bare wooden floor.
10 unique nights, featuring over 30 leading dancemakers.

With just a bare wooden floor and a simple lighting set-up, Touch Wood is the place where Choreodrome and invited artists first expose their summer works in progress to an audience, lifting the lid on creative developments that are usually hidden in The Place's studios.

Each unique night of dance comes together at the last minute and line-ups will be announced online. To check the evolving programme of artists, register for updates and book tickets, go to www.theplace.org.uk/touchwood


In every major city people are in a constant rush, just trying to hold onto their own corner and chasing their own shadow. If someone asks for the time, do you answer? If someone asks for spare change, do you give it to them? It might after all be a trap, a pitfall?

Straightforward, ironic and bold, CITY is about dictatorship, discrimination, prejudice, power, fear, ignorance, attraction and faith in the bustling urban sprawl.

Working out of Budapest and London, the BLOOM! collective comprises five young dance artists: Viktória Dányi, Csaba Molnár, Tà ­mea Sebestyén, Moreno Solinas and Igor Urzelai. BLOOM! was awarded the Rudolf Laban Award in 2010 for best Hungarian dance production (CITY) and received an artistic residency through the Prix Jardin D?Europe 2010.
