Independent Dance presents WHAT NOW 2011

About

A weekend of new and experimental work by independent artists 16 - 17 April 2011 WHAT NOW 2011 presents choreographic thinking in diverse forms. It includes installation and time-based work, performance lectures, photography and books, alongside live performances. Work will be located around Siobhan Davies Studios and run across the weekend. Featured artists include: Kristine Bumeistere, Helen Cerina, Solène Coignard, Augusto Corrieri, Mihaela Dancs, Jane Frances Dunlop and Fiona James, Rachel Gomme, Andrew Graham, Victoria Gray, Janine Harrington, Helka Kaski and Rosalie Wahlfrid, Gillie Kleiman, Florence Peake, Efrosini Protopapa, Alessandra Ruggeri, Clara Turchi, Oliver Wilshen and Niall Quinn Of the motivations behind WHAT NOW 2011 Gill Clarke (co-director Independent Dance) says: ‘WHAT NOW offers a glimpse of the artistic ideas and practices of some of our most promising dance graduates alongside mature artists. It represents a burgeoning field of work from artists who are choosing to think and ask questions through and of movement and the body, with a disregard for traditional artform boundaries. Following the successful WHAT NOW Festival in 2009 celebrating experimental work by a new generation of dance artists, and What if… 2010 with a focus on work for screen, WHAT NOW 2011 returns the spotlight to current choreographic thinking in diverse forms by young and more established artists.'
