Dance this summer


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 RootlessRoot Company Eyes in the Colour of the Rain Inspired by William Blake's poem Night and the texts related to St John's Vision, Eyes in the Colors of the Rain is a blistering trio that lays bare the painful collision between physical material and the soul. It is a performance in which physical structures collapse and are continually rebuilt, revealing life that is locked away. RootlessRoot Company was formed in 2006 in Athens by Linda Kapetanea and Jozef Frucek. Between 2002 and 2006 the pair performed with Wim Vandekeybus' Ultima Vez Company. RootlessRoot last appeared at The Place as an Aerowaves company in 2008, displaying a characteristic style of intensely physical dance that is instantly compelling, chaotic and raw.
