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
Yossi Berg and Oded Graf Dance Theatre
How would you define yourselves in just three sentences? Animal Lost started with this question and the result is a look at stereotypes, misperceptions and social clichés.
The work raises questions about cultural and social differences and the universality of repression, sexuality, fantasies and the needs of the individual.
Animal Lost deals with our ability to redefine ourselves time and again, with the performers shifting between illusions and reality, trying to awaken the darker elements inside each of us.
Yossi Berg, who has worked with DV8 Physical Theatre, Batsheva Dance Company and Yasmeen Godder, started collaborating with Oded Graf in 2005. Together they have built a reputation for work that is supremely physical, sometimes provocative, and by turns poignant and witty. Their company performs throughout the world and has won a string of international choreography competitions.
