After weeks of searching and a national competition, new work by six of the most exciting and original choreographers has been selected to be premiered on Wednesday 3 June at the Rose Theatre during Ignition Dance Festival. Choreographers are: Antoine Marc, Johnny Autin, John Ross, Zamira Kate Mummery, Neus Gil Cortés and Patricia Okenwa!
Each choreographer has been supported with research and development weekenders, a bursary, studio space and a professionally produced platform.
Are you also working in the industry or looking to get into the dance industry? Come along to a panel debate prior to the performance (6.00-7.00pm). We are working with International Youth Arts Festival to curate a panel debate which includes the following guest speakers...
