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
(Big Girls do Big Things)
Just how big and crazy can you make a performance? Toying with the surface-oriented world of a performer, Big Girls do Big Things whispers what should be shouted and sings what should only be whispered.
In her quest for the accomplishment of 'big things', American dancer and choreographer Eleanor Bauer pastiches all sorts of performing artists, digging up images from pop culture, dance history and the underground. She transforms herself into a rapper, a ballerina, a diva and even a polar bear, making use of all the possibilities the stage has to offer.
Eleanor Bauer studied at the Tisch School of the Arts in New York and at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. She has been creating her own works since 2005 and has danced for Trisha Brown, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Mette Ingvartsen.
